9th Light Horse Regiment Location - 2½ miles south west El Mezze
9th Light Horse Regiment War Diary - 0820 Moved to a bivouac site 11/2 miles south of El Mudhamiye. The fast marching of the past fortnight had caused many casualties in sore backs amongst the horses of the Regiment, particularly pack animals and rides in low condition. About 30 of these were placed on the sick horse lines and about 30 others were treated in the lines. Great credit is due to the assiduous manner in which Turner, Farrier Quartermaster Sergeant, and his assistants carried out their duties in attending to horse casualties. The greater number of these horses were fit again within a fortnight. Bone, 3592 Trooper E, died of illness.
