The last great cavalry charge, perhaps!

January 1, 1970 @ 10:00 am

Presented by Dr David Holloway
Victoria’s 4th Light Horse Regiment had, after its dismounted turn on Gallipoli, seen little serious action.

By the time of the attack on Beersheba it was champing at the bit for action.

The unlikely charge by the 4th and 12th Light Horse Regiments armed only with slung rifles and bayonets to hand was, against all the odds, very successful and the town fell, the prelude to the complete rout of the Turkish forces in Palestine.
