On the 31st of October, 1917, the Battle of Beersheba was fought in Ottoman Syria, resulting in the successful capture of the town of Beersheba by the British Empire from the troops of the Ottoman and German Empires. This battle included the infamous and successful charge of the 4th and 12th ANZAC Light Horse Regiments, armed only with hand-held bayonets and supported by British artillery, against Ottoman trenches.
