The Light Horse
Australians in the Middle East 1916-18
20 October 2017 - 21 October 2018
While Australian infantry served in the grim trenches of the Western Front, their comrades in the Australian Light Horse were fighting dynamic campaign of manoeuvre against the Ottoman Turks in the desert wastes of Sinai, Palestine and Syria.
This exhibition tells the story of the Sinai-Palestine campaign and explores how it has captured the imagination of Australians ever since.
