On 31 October 2017 we have the Beersheba Centenary. As this was the last real major charge by a British mounted force, and not to mention a legendary Australian success, and one truly deserving of being remembered and honoured, it is something I would really like to celebrate.

I will be using Great War (WHH) in 28mm with my own modifications to simulate the charge. The real battle was a race against time to secure the wells before Turks and Germans could blow them up, if the Anglo/Australian force broke through, And I would like to simulate that too.

Ideally I would like a couple of players on each side. But if we cannot get the numbers in October and there is more interest in November at the LoA, then that would work too.

cheers
Mark

I'm interested in October but will be playing in in the Vic Ancients Champs in November. Are there any other takers yet?

Sounds very interesting, obviously I won't be able to play but I know it'll be a great spectacle so I'm sure to have a look.

Only Jan and me at this stage. It just seems bad timing with the tournament coming up... I would ideally like 5 players [2 Turks/3 Aussies]. So I will have to wait & see how we go over the next week.

cheers

Would be fun but playing in the Battle of Friedland this meeting.

Mark if this isn't going to run then I'll also be defecting to the Friedland game as I don't want to me left without a game at the meeting! Perhaps running this in December would be a goer instead?

No worries Django, I entirely understand. I think December is a wise suggestion in the circumstances.

cheers

Ideally I would like 3-4 Aussie/Pom and up to 2 Turk/German players, and so at the moment we have room, but a firm yeah or nay would be good too for planning.

cheers

Hi Mark.

You can pencil me in for spot if you still have one free.
