Shinfield war memorial Reading (Berks) W,H. Lailey

Classification: Query
Surnames: Lailey
I have found an ancestor: Pte T. H Lailey, 1st Bn The Berkshire Regiment, on the above war memorial.

What is interesting, however, is that below his name is WILLIAM H LAILEY, who I believe served with the Australian Light Horse.

I'm wondering WHY an Aussie soldier is on the local memorial, and whether he can be linked to the lailey family from the village of Shinfield. If he is linked I need to find out why he ended up in the Australian Light horse?????
