Curator Conversation

Captain Adele Catts debunks Light Horse Myths at ‘More than Beersheba’ on Wednesday 7 October at 2pm.  

Put your First World War history knowledge to the test and come along to this month’s Curator Conversation ‘More than Beersheba’ at Cobb+Co Museum on Wednesday 7 October, 2pm.
A century on from the great Battle of Beersheba, many myths still surround the Australian Light Horse.

Adele Catts Museum Manager, Army Museum South Queensland, will be putting some of these myths to rest including the common misunderstanding surrounding the fate of the Australian Army Horses after the First World War.

Through her extensive research and in her role as former Curator of the 2nd/14th Light Horse Regiment (QMI) Museum, Captain Catts has gained significant insight into the experiences of the men and horses of the Australian Army during WW1. Join us for an entertaining and enlightening afternoon as Captain Catts shares a larger story of the Light Horse not limited to the famous Battle of Beersheba.

This talk is part of the Curator Conversation series presented on the first Wednesday of each month.

Free with admission to the Museum. (Admission to Cobb+Co Museum is free for Toowoomba Regional Council residents.)
