About This Unit
The 4th Light Horse is the only Light Horse Regiment that saw significant service in both the Middle East and the Western Front. It thus posseses a unique set of Battle Honours, including the most famous Light Horse battle of them all; the charge at Beersheba.
This siutation came about when, after Gallipoli where the Light Horse had fought without its horses, two squadrons of the 4th Light Horse were despatched to the Western Front. The remainder stayed on in Palestine and went on to write history.
