Most of the Egyptian Expeditionary Force's infantry divisions were at the end of their [[Line of communication|lines of communication]] and were not able to follow up the Ottoman withdrawal. XXI Corps's [[54th (East Anglian) Division]] was forced to rest at Gaza and the [[Imperial Service Cavalry Brigade]] at Beit Hanun. In the rear, Lieutenant General [[Philip Chetwode, 1st Baron Chetwode|Philip Chetwode's]] [[XX Corps (United Kingdom)|XX Corps]] had transferred its transport to XXI Corps. XX Corps's [[60th (2/2nd London) Division]] (Major General [[John Shea (Indian Army officer)|John Shea]]) was resting at Huj and its [[10th (Irish) Division|10th (Irish)]] (Major General [[John Longley]]) and [[74th (Yeomanry) Division|74th (Yeomanry)]] (Major General [[Eric Girdwood]]) Divisions were at Karm. In the field were the [[53rd (Welsh) Division]] (Major General S. F. Mott), corps cavalry, the [[Imperial Camel Corps Brigade]] and the [[New Zealand Mounted Rifles Brigade]], deployed in the front line near Tel el Khuweilfe in the foothills of the Judean Hills north of Beersheba.<ref name=Wavell150-1>Wavell 1968, pp. 150–1</ref><ref>Bruce 2002, pp. 147–9</ref><ref>New Zealand Mounted Rifles Brigade War Diary 8 and 9 November 1917 AWM4-35-1-31</ref> Allenby ordered the Yeomanry Mounted Division back from Khuweilfe to Chauvel immediately, in the afternoon of the 8 November but they did not arrive on the right flank of Desert Mounted Corps until two days later, on 10 November. The Imperial Camel Corps Brigade was also returned to Chauvel's command on 11 November when the New Zealand Mounted Rifle Brigade was ordered forward {{convert|52|mi|km}} from Beersheba.

Had the Australian and New Zealand regiments been armed with the sword they may have had opportunities for decisive shock actions in addition to the yeomanry cavalry charges at Huj, El Mughar and Abu Shushe.<ref name="Hill132–3">Hill 1978 pp. 132–3</ref>
