In part, Lyn Collingwood as written:

"After taking part in the final months of the Gallipoli campaign, he was deployed to Palestine. In May 1917 he was promoted to lance corporal, but at his own request reverted to trooper. On 31 October, while serving as a stretcher-bearer, he was shot dead by a Turk at close range at the third Battle of Gaza."

Note: Beersheba is a southern town on the edge of the Negev Desert, 75 kilometres south-west of Jerusalem.

Note: The dead bodies of Australian soldiers killed in the charge on Beersheba lie in a row on the ground. The dead men were members of the 12th and perhaps the 4th Light Horse Regiments. The body marked with an 'X' is that of 924 Trooper Albert (Tibby) Cotter of the 12th Light Horse Regiment. His elder brother Pte John Cotter, 4th Battalion, was killed in action in France less than a month earlier on 4 October 1917.

Lyn Collingwood has written, in part:

"Albert was buried in the Palestine 1 Beersheba War Cemetery. Now in Israel, Beersheba lies 43 kilometres south-east of Gaza. By July 1918, the cemetery contained 139 bodies, increased to 1,241 after the Armistice. The brothers’ war service, and their battalion colours, are featured on the Cotter family’s monument in Sydney’s Waverley Cemetery.

Note: Part transcription from his military record.
Note: By October 1917, General Allenby's force had been entrenched in front of a strong Turkish position along the Gaza-Beersheba road for some months, but they were now ready to launch an attack with Beersheba as its first objective. On 31 October, the attack was carried out by the XXth Corps (10th, 53rd, 60th and 74th Divisions) on the west, and the Desert Mounted Corps on the east. That evening the 4th Australian Light Horse Brigade charged over the Turkish trenches into the town. The cemetery was made immediately on the fall of the town, remaining in use until July 1918, by which time 139 burials had been made It was greatly increased after the Armistice when burials were brought in from a number of scattered sites and small burial grounds. The cemetery now contains 1,241 Commonwealth burials of the First World War, 67 of them unidentified.
