ANZAC attacks Beer-Sheva again!

Well, kind of.

Fifty Australian horsemen crossed the barren plains of the Negev late Sunday afternoon. They wore green cavalry uniforms, high boots and Australian bush hats adorned with a feather. A cloud of dust rose in their wake.

The riders were kicking off a reenactment of the ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) cavalry campaign that led to the capture of the city of Be'er Sheva in 1917.

Welcome, folks! I hope the beer is to your taste.

And may the memory of the ANZAC soldiers who died then and at any other time be blessed.
