October 31st, 1917, marks the epic event for which Waler is famous; when two regiments of Lighthorse, the 4th, Victorians, and the 12th, New South Wales, charged the Turkish defences of Beersheba, Palestine. With bayonets in their hands, the Light Horsemen and their Waler steeds charged over six kilometers of open ground against the Turkish and German guns. Only one came home; 'Sandy', the mount of Major-General W.T. Bridges; who died at sea on May 18, 1915 from wounds sustained at Gallipoli.

Walers were reliable and showed great endurance. About of these Australian horses served in Frank Derrick - Monto Troup Light Horse Regiment. I had a Great Uncle in the Light Horse Brigade.
