The Last Charge – Centenary Exhibition of the Charge at El Mughar @ Bucks County Museum
Nov 25 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
The Last Charge – Centenary Exhibition of the Charge at El Mughar @ Bucks County Museum | England | United Kingdom

The Last Charge – Centenary Exhibition of the Charge at El Mughar
31 October 2017 – 6 January 2018

The charge of the 6th Mounted Brigade at El Mughar in Palestine on 13 November 1917 can claim to be the last great British cavalry charge, although there were later charges in Syria in 1918 by an Indian regiment and by the Australian Light Horse.

Significantly, James Prinsep Beadle was commissioned to paint the charge at El Mughar as the cavalry contribution to a representative collection of Great War studies for the United Services Club in Pall Mall. Never previously exhibited outside of the building, which now houses the Institute of Directors, Beadle’s painting depicts ‘B’ Squadron of the 1/1st Royal Bucks Hussars leading the charge against the Ottoman Turkish defenders.

This exhibition brings together Beadle’s painting, Thomas Cantrell Dugdale’s painting of the same charge, and other artefacts and images, to commemorate the service of men from Buckinghamshire in Palestine. It is one of the forgotten campaigns of the First World War, yet one that left a profound legacy in terms of the shaping of the modern Middle East.

Entry to the exhibition – By Donation.
