BBC – Great War Horses (2017)

BBC Great War Horses

The horses that provided the backbone of the Australian Light Horse regiments in World War I were popularly known as Walers. Bred for Australia’s tough Outback conditions, Walers were well-equipped for the harsh climate and terrain of the Middle East, where the ANZAC forces faced the armies of the Ottoman Empire.

A moving account of the men and horses of the Australian Light Horse and the pivotal role they played in World War I at the Battle of Romani (1916), the celebrated Light Horse charge at the Battle of Beersheba (1917) and the capture of Damascus in 1918.

Produced by Mago Films 2014.
