Remembering the Battle of Beersheba

Australian bravery and ingenuity on the battlefield will today be honoured as 100 horsemen and women recreate the charge of the 4th Light Horse Brigade as part of the centenary commemorations for the Battle of Beersheba in Israel.
The Battle of Beersheba on 31 October 1917 was part of the wider British offensive known as the third Battle of Gaza, leading to the capture of the town of Be’er-Sheva.
