Australian Light Horse association COMMEMORATIVE Beersheba memorial Medallion

“The Charge of the Australian Light Horse and capture of Beersheba 31 October 1917 has gone down in the annals of Australian history as the turning point of the war in Palestine.”

The Australian Light Horse Association had the honour of being part of the team that was formed to create a park named “The Park of the Australian Soldier” and memorial in Beersheba, Israel.  The park is dedicated to the memory of the Australian Light Horse and in particular the Charge at Beersheba by the 4th and 12th LH regiments on the 31st October, 1917.  The park itself contains a memorial to the Australian Light Horse along with a large recreation and play area which includes equipment for use by the children of Beersheba and with a special focus being on the needs of their disabled children.

The memorial itself was designed and constructed in Australia by Artist and Sculptor Peter Corlett of Melbourne.  Upon its completion, the memorial was flown to Israel and placed into position in the Park during February 2008.  The official opening of the Park and Memorial Dedication took place on the 28th April 2008, in Beersheba, Israel with worldwide coverage from the media showing the huge significance this dedication held.

This Limited Edition Medallion has been created to serve as a lasting memory of this momentous event. It shows an impression of the statue as the Lighthorseman and his mount gallantly jump the sandbagged desert trench to victory.

DVD:  'IN THE STEPS OF THE LIGHT HORSE'
 

DVD"The recent trip by 70 Light Horsemen from the Australian Light Horse Association to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the charge of Beersheba 31-10-07, received unexpected and unprecedented worldwide publicity. A documentary has been made of this momentous trip called "In the steps of the Light Horse". This re-enactment of the ride through the desert following the exact route the Australian Light Horse took in 1917 including the charge over the same ground, is compelling viewing.

The film opens with that prophetic quote from Winston Churchill; “From the ends of the earth ships and men are gathering together in the Eastern Mediterranean to fulfil a destiny as yet unknown by mortal man.” The documentary shows the important part the Australian Mounted Division played in shaping history. The film starts in Gallipoli where the Australian Light Horse fought without their horses in the Gallipoli campaign, then moves to Israel and follows the various campaigns involved in the Allied defeat of the Ottoman Turkish Empire. The Israel tour was held in conjunction with Kelvin Crombie, noted Australian author and historian, and the “Society for the preservation of WW1 history in Israel”.

Cost:  First copy $25 - Subsequent copies $20 - Overseas add Postage $10.00
