In July 1918, the division was renamed as the 5th Cavalry Division, it remained in Palestine after the end of the war on occupation duties until broken up in 1920. In March 1918, the 2nd Indian Cavalry Division was broken up in France; the Canadian and British units remained in France and the Indian elements were sent to Egypt. By an Egyptian Expeditionary Force GHQ Order of 12 April 1918, the mounted troops of the EEF were reorganised when the Indian Army units arrived in theatre. On 24 April 1918, the 2nd Mounted Division was formed on the Indian Establishment; this new formation should not be confused with the original 2nd Mounted Division that saw action in the Gallipoli Campaign, though the 5th and 7th Mounted Brigades served in both.

The 5th Mounted Brigade was transferred from the Australian Mounted Division and merged with elements of the 3rd Cavalry Brigade the 7th Mounted Brigade was merged with elements of the 9th Cavalry Brigade the Imperial Service Cavalry Brigade joined as the division's third brigade two of the Yeomanry Regiments were merged to form B Battalion, Machine Gun Corps. The 1/1st Queen's Own Worcestershire Hussars became the XX Corps Cavalry Regiment, they were replaced by Indian Cavalry Regiments from France. The Field Ambulances and Mobile Veterinary Sections merged with their Indian counterparts; the Essex Battery, RHA and ammunition column joined with 7th Mounted Brigade. Other divisional elements were raised for the new division. On 22 July 1918, the 2nd Mounted Division was renumbered as the 5th Cavalry Division and the brigades as the 13th, 14th and 15th Cavalry Brigades; the sub units were renumbered on the same date. The 2nd Mounted / 5th Cavalry Division served with the Desert Mounted Corps for the rest of the war, taking part in the Second Transjordan Raid, Affair of Abu Tellul, the Final Offensive including the Battle of Megiddo, Capture of Haifa and Damascus, Affair of Haritan and Occupation of Aleppo.

The division remained in Palestine on occupation duties after the end of the war. However, demobilization began and most of the British war time units had left by the middle of 1919. 14th Cavalry Brigade was broken up in September 1919, the 15th Cavalry Brigade in January 1920. The division was broken up in April 1920. 4th Cavalry Division formed at the same time in a similar manner. List of Indian divisions in World War I Becke, Major A. F..

Cuisine of East Timor

The Cuisine of East Timor consists of regional popular foods such as pork, basil, legumes, rice, root vegetables, tropical fruit. East Timorese cuisine has influences from Southeast Asian foods and from Portuguese dishes from its colonisation by Portugal. Flavours and ingredients from other former Portuguese colonies can be found due to the presence of Portuguese soldiers from other colonies in East Timor; the food in East Timor is divided into two categories: non vegetarian. As agriculture is the main occupation in East Timor, the primary food is rice, cultivated in this country. Apart from rice, other staple food items that are cultivated in East Timor include sweet potatoes, maize and taro; these primary staples are supplemented with beans, spinach and cowpeas. The second category of food consists of poultry and goats. Most homes in East Timor raise their own food animals for meat. Fish is a source of animal protein in this country as fishing is an important occupation after agriculture. Batar daan- A popular dish of corn, mung beans, pumpkin.

Budu- A sauce of tomato, mint and Spanish onion. Ikan sabuko- A Spanish mackerel in tamarind marinade with basil and capsicum. Tapai- A fermented rice dish, it is sweet and alcoholic. Caril - A mild chicken curry with a roasted capsicum and coconut paste. Feijoada – A common dish of former Portuguese colonies, it is made with pork, cannellini beans and chorizo. East Timor's crops rely on the rains; this leads to a period of poor food security coined the “Hungry Season” from November to February due to the unpredictable climate. Many households depend on their own production of food because of the erratic climate conditions, such as droughts. Many families subsist on akar, a available food source for the poor, it is dried palm tree bark, beaten into a powder, mixed with water to form a jelly and cooked over fire. This leads to cases where nearly 58% of children under the age of five suffer from chronic malnutrition. Bibinka- A grilled and layered coconut cake Portuguese tart - an egg tart pastry The coffee of East Timor is organic and a major cash crop for the island nation.

Coffee accounts for 90 percent of the country’s non-oil exports, while 46 percent of East Timorese households rely on coffee for their income. The crop has grown in the country for centuries, it accounted for half of the country's trade when it was a Portuguese colony in the late 1800s, but during 24 years of Indonesian occupation the bumper business was neglected when the military took over – prices fluctuated and many coffee plantations were battlefields so the quality of beans worsened. By the war’s end, agricultural experts estimated two generation’s worth of farming knowledge was lost and some plantations were abandoned, but because the trees got little attention the pesticide and fertiliser-free groves are popular for organic coffee lovers. Today, the coffee is known as the golden prince of East Timor agriculture - worth $10 million a year, 46,000 coffee farms employ one-fifth of East Timor’s population but it is a major battle to encourage farmers to improve the quality of East Timor’s agriculture
