Bridgehead on the Jordan River


Another picture taken from I was there magazine. We’re no more in Italy, but in Palestine, in May 1918. These men of the Australian Light Horse are holding a sector of the bridgehead at Ghoraniye. This bridgehead was established on the Eastern side of the Jordan River after a raid on Amman in the previous March.
