Author and historian Stuart Hadaway will be talking about the Affair at Qatia, 23 April 1916.

On this day, an Ottoman force intent on attacking the Suez Canal (what Kaisar Wilhelm called the 'jugular vein of the British Empire') ran into the British 5th Mounted Brigade at the oases of Qatia/Katia and Oghratina. The Warwickshire Yeomanry, Queen's Own Worcestershire Hussars (Yeomanry), and Royal Gloucestershire Hussars (Yeomanry) fought for most of the day under the burning sun, outnumbered and without support. The brigade took terrible casualties, but held the Ottomans back long enough for the Canal defences to be activated, allowing the attack to be defeated and the crucial waterway kept open.
