  1. The British High Command ordered the wholesale destruction of the entire compliment of the Australian horses who were loyal companions to the diggers in the Middle East.
    The horses that were involved with the last Calvary charge at Beresheba.
    Most of the men elected to shoot their own mounts.
    The excuse was that it was too expensive to ship these loyal and brave animals home.
