For anyone who is interested there is quite a lot on the internet re last Tuesday's 100th aniversary of the battle of Beersheba including a re-enactment of the actual charge. A friend of mine is currently working there as a special needs teacher. Despite a limited interest in military history she went along and was amazed. She sent us a lot of pictures and video of the events. It was attended by the Israeli and Australian leaders and the Governor General of New Zealand plus relatives and off spring from the light horseman. She also said there was a ceremony at the Turkish memorial.
