AL093 Light Horse Bugler
Back a hundred years ago bugle calls ‘ruled’ a soldier’s life from ‘reveille’ first thing in the morning till ‘lights-out’ last thing at night!
Almost every duty or task a soldier might be ordered to do would and could be announced by the sound of a bugle call. Here is the camp bugler doing what buglers do!
This coming 31st October 2017 marks the centenary of the epic charge of the Australian Light Horse to capture the town and water wells of BEERSHEBA in what was then Palestine but is now part of modern-day Israel. The Australian horsemen, against fierce Turkish opposition, charged the enemy’s lines and frontline trenches scattering their opponents and then galloping on into the town itself to capture the all-important water wells. It proved to be one of the major turning points of the War in the Desert during WW1.
