The Australian Lighthorse

1/3/2015 - 1/10/2015

The Australian Lighthorse were known for their bravery throughout World War I. The Lighthorse mostly consisted of mounted infantry or troops who rode into battle and then dismounted to continue the advance on foot. In 1917, the Lighthorse earned a place in history when they performed the last successful cavalry charge during their attack on the city of Beersheba.
