Horse Power: Light Horse in Palestine - to Beersheba and beyond


A century ago young Light Horsemen from from the New England region found themselves on the other side of the world fighting their way from Egypt to Lebanon. The historic Battle of Beersheba in October 1917 is one the most famous encounters in this campaign which pushed men and their horses to their limits. Horse Power provides you with an opportunity to look at the day to day life of these soldiers through their own images and words.

The exhibition includes never before exhibited photographs, diaries and memorabilia from local private and family collections which will help us tell the story of the deployment to Palestine and the historic Battle of Beersheba from a number of perspectives.

Curated by William Oates, UNE University Archivist.

Presented in partnership with the University of New England.

An official event of the Centenary of Beersheba.
