BATTLE OF ROMANI
LIMITED EDITION MEDALLION

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.

SANDS OF GALLIPOLI
"MOUNTED" LIMITED EDITION MEDALLION

In May 1915 members of the Australian Light Horse and New Zealand Mounted Rifles, after leaving their horses in Egypt, began to arrive at Gallipoli to replace casualties among the infantry. They were to fight dismounted throughout the campaign. Like the infantry, they garrisoned in the trenches and fought in many actions - the most tragic and famous for the Australians being the charge at the Nek on 7 August where they suffered nearly 400 casualties. On the night of 6/7 August the New Zealand Mounted Rifles Brigade, supplemented with soldiers from the New Zealand Maori Pioneer Battalion, 'opened the door' for the August offensive by capturing Turkish posts in the foothills north of ANZAC in a series of attacks described as an unsurpassed 'magnificent feat of arms'. By the end of the month this 2400 strong brigade had been reduced to only 365 men. Includes a certificate of authenticity and a vial of Sands of Gallipoli. Only 5000 sets of this stunning medallion will be released.
