The Battle of Beersheba

The 4th Light Horse Regiment was Australia’s only unit to fight on all three fronts during the First World War. They served dismounted at Gallipoli before being divided between France and Palestine. Their legendary attack at Beersheba on 31 October 1917 saw the Regiment, armed only with bayonets, capture enemy trenches at the gallop. Celebrate History Week and join 4th Light Horse historian Dr David Holloway OAM as he reflects one hundred years later on this unique regiment.
