Surafend, the massacre
Palestine, 10 December 1918
The following account by 3022 Trooper Alfred Norman Bodinnar, 6th LHR, details events he witnessed during the day leading up to the events at Surafend.
I belong to "C" Troop, "A" Squadron. After we go the order to stand to, I saw at least 20 men of my troop standing to in the lines, the strength of the troop is about 25. I heard about 1900 that the raid was to come off from a NZ soldier who came into the lines but I didn't take anything of it and none of the other men about appeared to take much notice of it.
