Front line Sangar, with the 7th Light Horse
Lambert made a brief visit to the front line, which in February 1918 passed through Nalin in the Judaean Hills, south of Jerusalem. He made two small oil studies as well as many pencil drawings of light horsemen who were occupying small fortified positions, known as “sangars”, built of rubble gathered from the rocky and inhospitable landscape. The figure on the left of the image with his left arm pointing towards the Turkish line is possibly Kenneth Joshua Hart, of the 7th Light Horse in Palestine.
