Comments: The story of a serving officer with the British 2nd battalion against the Senussi and during the Palestine campaign
Rebellious arabs, the turkish enemy, the implacable desert an the irascible camel – a unique maunt for these unusual campaigns The Imperial Camel Corps had a short but eventful existence. Operating in the Western Desert against the Senussi in Sinai, in the Palestine Campaign and in Arabia, it played an important part in the actions associated with T.E Lawrence. The deployment of his highly mobile mounted force, drawn from Imperial troops, was extremely successful. Inchbald’s account of his time as an officer with the 2nd Battalion, which was comprised entirely of British Troops, vividly recounts the eventful exploits of this unique corps.
