The home of the Australian Profession of Arms.
As dusk fell on the 31st of October 1917, the 4th Light Horse Brigade – bayonets in hand – launched a horseback charge to seize control of the crucial town of Beersheba from the Ottoman Empire. This successful cavalry charge heralded the beginning of the end for Ottoman control of Palestine, and ensured the name of Beersheba would be forever remembered in Australian history because of its daring cavalry charge. The Cove proudly brings you the animated history of Australia's involvement in the Battle of Beersheba.
