Example text

A few army tanks, called ‘land battleships,’ even joined them. Bess and the other horses hated the graunching, clanking iron monsters which soon proved themselves too clumsy and slow in battle. The troopers were especially excited about the delivery of some new and faster aeroplanes. Enemy planes had killed and injured many of their horses, and the Anzac airmen had struggled to take them on in their own outdated planes. Now at last the tables would be turned. Over the next six months, the Anzacs’ main job was patrolling, reconnoitering and harassing the enemy line stretching across the Palestinian plain.

The patrol would leap into the saddles and plunge into the safety of the night. Hawker often joined them on these night patrols, riding out on Jack behind his master’s saddle. Jack’s master liked the little dog’s company through the long, lonely nights on sentry duty. It was in the middle of one of these watches that Hawker saved them all. It was a night of utter stillness and bitter cold. The men huddled in their greatcoats trying to sleep, the horses bunched together on their lines. Jack’s master sat with his rifle across his knees, gazing fixedly into the night.

She felt the now-familiar grasp of his thighs and the pulsing of his blood and she hurtled forward. The horses had to get as close as possible before shelling and machine-gun fire forced the troopers to dismount and continue their attack on foot. Bess galloped alongside Jack at breakneck speed. Suddenly a deep trench opened up in front of them. Bess leapt it in one massive stride, her master clinging on. Jack and his master did the same as a horrible screech split the air. A Turkish gunner lunged from the trench, stabbing Jack’s master in the leg.
