I will be leaving for Jordan/Israel on Monday 22 Aug and hope to visit the area where 4 LH formed up for the charge on Beersheba. I have the book Chauvel of the Light Horse by A J Hill, which gives a good map of the area around Beersheba on P129. I also have the photographs from your website which show the skyline.

This may be enough for me to find the spot. However, I would be most grateful if someone could give me precise directions on how to get to the area and/or recognise it. From there it is my intention to walk the ground the ALH rode.
