The dead bodies of Australian soldiers killed in the charge on Beersheba lie in a row on the ground. The dead men were members of the 12th and perhaps the 4th Australian Light Horse Regiments. The body marked with an X is that of 924 Trooper (Tpr) Albert (Tibby) Cotter of the 12th Light Horse Regiment (12ALH). Tpr Cotter, who came from Glebe in Sydney, had been a noted cricketer before the war. His elder brother John had been killed in action in France less than two weeks before.
