In February 1916, the Dorset Yeomanry ended the threat of Senussi tribal resistance in Egypt’s Western Desert with a cavalry charge at Agagia.
This mounted action was the first of many that came to define the First World War in the Middle East.
This talk will highlight the diversity of these mounted forces, their roles and the significant contribution they made once operations became more mobile.
