This is an account of the action at Haritan, near Aleppo, on 26 October 1918, from the official history of the 15th (Imperial Service) Cavalry Brigade.
The 15th (Imperial Service) Cavalry Brigade was primarily made up of troops from the Indian Princely States of Hyderabad, Mysore, Patiala and Jodhpur, with additional smaller detachments from Kathiawar, Kashmir, Bhavnagar and Idar. During the First World War it saw action in the Sinai and Palestine Campaign.
The fighting at Haritan was one of the last actions in the Campaign. The Armistice of Mudros came into force at 12 noon on 31 October 1918, ending the conflict between the Ottoman Empire and the Allies.
