Default Beersheba Charge Centenary - 31st October

Today is the centenary of the charge of the 4th Light Horse Brigade (4th and 12th Light Horse Regiments) at Beersheba on the 31st October, 1917.

At Beersheba the 4th Light Horse Brigade's bold charge against Turkish positions at Beersheba, seized a critical wells that enabled British empire forces to break the Ottoman line near Gaza and advance into Palestine.

Lest We Forget.

Great spectacle, I've watched it many times.

A remarkable achievement and very well portrayed in the film.......I'd like to think.

Remember them.

Regards.
