War Camels

Camels were used, like horses, on a huge scale in World War 1. Above they were used for pleasure by off duty soldiers but below with more serious purpose. The Keep Military Museum, Dorchester  has kindly sent us these images to help us with our next installation at Stourhead "Gallipoli and the Middle East." The Dorset Yeomanry, which many local men joined, fought in both those theatres of war.
