6th ALH regt - mid 1917 - formed part of 2nd ALH brigade under Gen Kelly which was part of the ANZAC mounted division, itself part of the Desert Mounted Coprs which saw action in Palastine 1917-1919. The 2nd ALH brigade was at tel el sukaty 31/10/17 (outside Beersheba), Auja, Bethlehem, Jericho, 1st trans Jordan raid (el salt & el howeij) - Jordan Valley (summer 1918), kabr mujahid & el sir. Withdrawn to Egypt spring/feb 191(?). Hope this is some of what you asked for - there are more details of the 2nd ALH brigade actions, but without specifically mentioning the 6th ALH regt.
