The charge of the 4th and 12th Australian Light Horse Regiments at Beersheba, 31st October 1917.

Yes, I know, technically Mounted Infantry, not Cavalry.

The picture was taken by Trooper Eric Eliot, an artillery scout, who had ridden ahead and turned his camera on his comrades as they charged past him.

Years ago in the window of an antique shop in Kent - on a Sunday afternoon so it was shut - I saw a print entitled 'The Charge that Saved the Guns at Mons'. Anybody got any form on this? I tried the internet (plenty for the Gunners like 'Saving the Guns at Maiwand') but no luck on this one.
