Palestine, Mejdel Jaffa Area, Latrun 3 January 1918
A Frank Hurley image of the The 3rd Australian Light Horse Brigade, returning to a rest camp after being in action on the Khurbertha-Ibn-Harith front, in Palestine. They are seen approaching their camping place for the night. Brigadier General Wilson is riding at the head of the column with Major Anderson DSO, the Brigade Major, on his left.
The notion of a "Desert Column" as epitomised in Ion Idriess' classic novel, is starkly illustrated with the Brigade column extending to the horizon.
