Charge of the Australian Light Brigade

This time they won, and as it says, changed the history of the Middle East. October 31 was the 101st anniversary.

A brief insight into the battle Beersheba 1917. 800 young Australian horsemen who obey the seemingly impossible order to gallop their horses across three miles of open desert into a storm of shell fire and machine gun crossfire. Smashing through Turkish defences to win the precious wells of Beersheba, they change the history of the Middle East.

Picked up at a Canadian website: Small Dead Animals.
