At Beersheba about 2000 Turkish prisoners were taken, of which about 1200 were taken by the ALH, the rest by the infantry. Over 500 Turkish corpses were buried on the battlefield. The casulties in the 2 regiments (12th & 4th) of the 4th Brigade ALH were 32 killed & 32 wounded. Source: "The Desert Mounted Corps" by R.M.P.Preston published 1921. Best regards, Jeremy.
