Can anyone help with the following:- I have read that each ALH Regt comprised 3 squadrons A, B, C and that a section had 6 mounts/riders, one of whom was the horseleader - please correct if wrong. How many men/mounts were in a squadron and what else other than the squadrons made up the Regt ? A further question: approximately how many men took part in the famous charge at Beersheba from the 4th & 12th ALH Regts ? Did Grant initially ride part of the way as is stated on the website dedicated to him ? I'm sure at least some of this has been asked before in past postings, but I can't find the answers anymore. Please help if you can, regards Jeremy.
