Herefordshire Regiment - men who died at Tel el Khuweilfeh

The Third Battle of Gaza was a victory for the British forces, but many men of the Herefordshire Regiment lost their lives in action at Tel el Khuweilfeh on 6 November. There is a detailed account of the battle at http://herefordshirelightinfantrymuseum.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/1917-Nov.pdf. A letter from the regimental padre of the 1/5th RWF to the sister of one of the men killed at Tel El Khuweilfeh states: "... the Herefords attacked the Turkish Palestine [sic] at dawn on Nov. 6th: they made a magnificent dash penetrating a long way into the enemy's line; the other battalions on their flanks did not push on so far, so that the Herefords had later in the day to come back some distance: many were killed in the advance [...] their bodies could not be recovered until the 8th when we sent the Turkish to flight. In the meantime the Turks had robbed the dead of all they possessed." The community includes men who died of wounds in the days after the battle. Note: The site of Tel el Khuweilfeh is now part of an Israeli kibbutz.
