"At a mile distant their thousand hooves were stuttering thunder, coming at a rate that frightened a man - they were an awe inspiring sight, galloping through the red haze - knee to knee and horse to horse - the dying sun glinting on bayonet points..." Trooper Ion Idriess

The Battle of Beersheba, Palestine, 31 October 1917, 12th LHR, AIF, Charge at Beersheeba
Topic: AIF - 4B - 12 LHR

The Battle of Beersheba

Palestine, 31 October 1917

12th LHR, AIF, Charge at Beersheeba

 

12th Light Horse Regiment men who charged at Beersheba

The following list comprises the men from the 12th Light Horse Regiment who were possibly at Beersheba on 31 October 1917 and may have been available to have taken part in the famous Charge at Beersheba.

The problems

The reason for the uncertainty, except for those wounded or killed in action arises from the situation that no roll was ever taken of the men who did charge. The historian is then left to search through the individual service records to ascertain if the man was likely to have been at Beersheba on the appropriate date. The exercise required examining many hundreds of records from potential candidates and narrowing down to the likely candidates whose files show no reason not to be at Beersheba.

The absence of a reason in itself does not mean that the person actually charged. A person may have reported sick in the morning and spent a couple days at the Field Ambulance. If the stay at the Field Ambulance was less than 14 days, generally it would not be recorded on the service record unless it was a reportable illness. Thus, the absence of a reaqson not to be at Beersheba is not evidence that a person was at Beersheba but it is more than likely that the person was at Beersheba.

The List

The following list was researched and constructed by Steve Becker and is reproduced with his permission.

Name: "Peter Sullivan"

I had the honour to briefly meet the last surviving member of the 4th.  His name was "Snowy" Heddington and he was, at that time (about 25yrs ago) about 100 yrs old.  He was at an aged care centre at Waterfall, south of sydney (Old T.B. Hospital) with his wife.  He was interviewd shortly after (By the Leader newspaper, I think on the aniversary or Anzac day) and was reported to say that his horse was shot from under him during hte charge.  Asked what he then did he answered "I bloody lay there.  they were shooting as us ya know!"  He made it into Beersheeba as the hand to hand was finsihing up.  He died shortly afterwards
