- This event has passed.
The last great cavalry charge, perhaps!

Victoria‚Äôs 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.
