Their committment to the battle allowed some of the vital water wells to be captured with large numbers of prisoners and guns. If they didn't all would have been destoryed by the Turks. And the Turks would have formed a stronger line of defence in the hills north of Beersheba, forcing us to go through it all again.
Still the wells taken didn't supply enough water for all the troops involved and many went without or had to travel to get it. This tied down the exploition by the Allied army for days afterwards. Just think what would have happen if they were not taken?
What is guts away?
