9th Light Horse Regiment Location - Hod Nagid
9th Light Horse Regiment War Diary - 0900 The Regiment moved out to support the 8th Light Horse Regiment who had just gained touch with the enemy soon after daylight - about three miles east of Hod es Sagia. They were forced to fall back and had taken up a position about one mile east of the Hod. We took over their line at 1400 holding it until after dark when the Regiment fell back on a line of outpost around Abu Darem.
During the afternoon the fighting mostly took the form of sniping and we suffered no casualties. The Inverness Battery did good firing on the ridge occupied by the Turks apparently getting home on their salvos.
