This cold cast bronze miniature figurine remembers the charge of 4th Light Horse Brigade at Beersheba on 31 October 1917. Eight hundred men of the 4th and 12th Light Horse regiments charged as a cavalry across open desert with bayonets in hand. Turkish defenders had no time to adjust rifle sights and fire went over the heads of the horsemen. Within minutes horses were leaping trenches. Such was the speed of the attack demolition teams were unable to destroy the town’s wells and other key buildings. The charge of the 4th Light Horse delivered Beersheba and opened the door for the capture of Jerusalem in December 1917.
