Photograph, World War One, Egypt and Palestine (1914-1918), 1918.
The Australian and New Zealand (ANZAC) Mounted Division was formed in Egypt in March 1916 from units that had returned from the Dardanelles where they had fought in a dismounted role. During the subsequent Sinai and Palestine campaign the division, commanded by Major General Sir Harry Chauvel and then Major General Edward Chaytor, played a leading role in the defeat of the Ottoman Turks in that theatre.
From album of 516 photographs compiled by Brigadier John Gilbert Browne (b 1879), 1916-1919; associated with 14th (King's) Hussars, Mediterranean Expeditionary Force and Egyptian Expeditionary Force.
