Step back in time: His­tory en­thu­si­asts, many of them de­scen­dants of soldiers who fought in the Aus­tralian Light Horse Bri­gade, take part in a reen­act­ment of the bat­tle of Beer­sheba, in Eshkol Na­tional Park, Is­rael, on Satur­day. Oc­to­ber 31 marks the 100th an­niver­sary for the bat­tle of Beer­sheba in which the Aus­tralian Light Horse Reg­i­ment played a sig­nif­i­cant role in cap­tur­ing the town for the Bri­tish Em­pire.
