dave,

in ref to how the camelier carried his ammo. I can not answer that but I refer to SOP's for the Camel Brigade which states that each man would carry 300 rds, purhaps the rest was in cotten bandaliers?

The two hundred rds around the camels kneck were in a special banalier which they had around there knecks, this was a reserve supply only.

P.S

Any info on the men of the Camel corps wpuld be of great help as I have almost finished a nominal roll for the Australia members of the Brigade.
