3rd LHR line of attack at Magdhaba, 23 December 1916
In order to present the real difficulties of attacking the Magdhaba Garrison, below is a hand drawn map from the 3rd LHR War Diary. It gets right down into describing individual features and problems faced by the attacking force.
This demonstrates the skill and tenacity of the men from that regiment in overcoming what would appear insummmountable obstacles in attacking the first redoubt. It is a strong testimony to the new found confidence of these men in their ability as soldiers.
