Great War-Battle of Romani Ltd Ed Medallion SoG 16


The battle of Romani took place between 3 and 5 August 1916 some 35 kilometres east of the vital Suez Canal, amidst the towering sand dunes of the Sinai Desert. Turkish forces attacked the British position at Wellington Ridge in the small hours of 4 August. Only Australia's 1st Light Horse was in position to meet the attack and although pushed back, they held the advance until reinforcements from the 2nd Light Horse joined the fight. During the day fresh troops from the 3rd Light Horse and the New Zealand and 5th Mounted Brigades joined the fight. The successful defence of Romani was a turning point in the war in the Sinai. It ended the Turkish threat to the Suez Canal and marked the beginning of the British forces' drive out of Egypt and into Palestine. Of around 1,100 'British' casualties most were from the ANZAC mounted divisions. Presented in an attractive leatherette box, it includes a certificate of authenticity and Sands of Gallipoli presentation. Only 1,000 units will be released.
