Tabulam hosted a Battle of Romani Festival all weekend with a service, displays, a market and live music.

Part of the festival was the Australian Light Horse Battle of Romani Celebratory Dinner at Tabulam Hall on Saturday, September 9.

The Battle of Romani was a strategic victory in World War I led by Lt General Sir Harry Chauvel who was born in Tabulam in 1865.

Chauvel was the first Australian to become a Lieutenant General, he was knighted twice for leadership in the field and he was the first non-British officer to command British troops.

One of the guest speakers Neil Dearberg said, “Tabulam can be proud of one of its sons.”

Here are some photos from the evening.
