On 31st October 1917, the outcome of the First World War was anything but clear. The losses at Gallipoli, setbacks on the Western Front and failures in the First and Second Battles of Gaza were the backdrop to the Battle of Beersheba. And so it was on this day that the ANZAC Light Horse gathered behind a ridge south-east of the city and moved off at a trot. Surprise and speed were their one chance.
