To Beersheba 1917 - Tom Thompson & Ion Idriess

Publisher Description

To help celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Charge of the Australian Light Horse at Beersheba on October 31 1917, this book offers nearly 100 unpublished photographs taken in the field by brothers Guy and Barney Hayden, of the 12th Light Horse. Both Lieutenants, the Haydons were at the forefront of the skirmish and the attack itself, and like all the Walers, their great horses Midnight and Polo play their essential part, right to the Charge itself. With Guy Haydon's testimony and Trooper Ion Idriess' diary note on the great day's events, this book is a celebration of our Light Horse - and the world's final great Charge in World War One.
