Camel saddle, Camel Corps, Egyptian Army, 1915 (c)

Egypt was part of the British Empire during World War One (1914-1918) and although the British Government pledged not to call up the citizens of Egypt for military service, their support was still needed, primarily to provide transport in the Sinai, Palestine and Syria campaigns. Originally volunteer camel drivers, subsequently conscripts, the Egyptian Camel Corps transported supplies and equipment to fighting troops across vast distances and inhospitable terrain. They even provided a method of casualty evacuation.
