The Imperial Camel Corps in Palestine (1 o 2)

The Imperial Camel Corps in Palestine

After the Gallipoli evacuation in January 1916 some New Zealanders stayed in the Middle East taking part in mounted operations against the Ottoman Empire in Sinai–Palestine and Mesopotamia (present-day Iraq). A few also became members of the Imperial Camel Corps. They are shown here resting during a march in Palestine. There is a memorial to the Camel Corps on the Embankment in London.
