We should not forget that many regiments would have given their eye teeth to carry out the intended charge - including the 11th ALH regt, but they were too far away engaged on reconnaisance work. The 4th ALH brigade had not been action at Beersheba, so the 4th & 12th ALH regts were available and fresh, their mounts and men up to the task. One should be careful when praising their bravery in carrying out their orders not to denegrate others who simply didnt get the opportunity.
