3rd Light Horse Brigade War Diary -
There were probably 30,000 horses in the Beersheba area and the water question became acute. There was not enough water for all there.
At 1400 the Division moved back to Karm, a distance of 15 miles. The track was in a very bad state. This route had been taken by all traffic to Beersheba from El Shellal and Tel el Jemmi, throughout the four days 'previous. The march was most trying. The rising dust was so great that it was impossible to see the ears of one's own horse. Several casualties occurred during this march, through horses and vehicles getting into uncovered wells and cisterns. At 2230 on 4th November after watering horses at Karm, the Brigade bivouacked 3/4 of a mile north west of Karm Railway Station.
