A History of 12 Australian Light Horse Regiment 1915-1919. Recruits who made up the 12 Australian Light Horse Regiment were said to be 'Natural Soldiers' - good shots, horsemen and well acquainted with living in the open. They first saw action in 1915 at Gallipoli without their horses (as infantry). By February 1916, they were reinforced and remounted in Egypt, before joining the main Australian Light Horse force to help eject the Turks and their German support from the Sinai , Palestine and Arabia. They played a leading role in the Charge of Beersheba.
