Re: 31 October 2015: Beersheba Day

It was also an important day in the North African campaign during the British operations to recapture Tobruk known as the "Day of the Dead" or in German "Todtsonnentag" which is mentioned in several of the books on the subject! I am glad that I was able to visit the graves of several of these men recently here in California.
