The Hervey Bay RSL sub-branch paid depicts depicts the World War I battle with an iconic mounted light horseman jumping an enemy trench during the charge of Beersheba in 1917. Speaking at the dedication, RSL Club National President Rear Admiral Ken Doolan said he saw the statue as representing all wars in which Australians have been deployed. He acknowledged the partnership between Hervey Bay RSL and Fraser Coast Council which embellished and enhanced the region, creating not only a place to honour fallen comrades, but a tourist attraction for the region. “I am full of admiration for the artist and this community,” he told the crowd. Special guest, Belgium ambassador Jen-Luc Bodson, said he was humbled to discover so many Australians had visited his country to see the frontline where the famous mounted charge of the 4th Light Horse Brigade took place. “Australians are highly regarded in my country for the sacrifi ce they made,” he said.
