Camel Corps: If only the World War I Camel Corps hadn’t been disbanded in 1919… Think of the fun they’d add to the Remembrance Sunday parade. In its short history, the Camel Corps fought in many key battles, all of which are listed on this monument, erected in 1921 and sculpted by veteran of the brigade Major Cecil Brown. The closest you can get to viewing their exploits these days is watching David Lean’s ‘Lawrence of Arabia’. Embankment Gardens, WC1.

This photo was taken on September 18, 2009 in Whitehall, London, England, GB,. The sculptures were made from guns captured in World War I and modelled on real guardsmen. The Irish Guardsman got impatient while he was being modelled and left before the artist had finished, so his legs belong to another soldier. The Memorial was damaged by German bombs during World War II and during the repairs a small hole was deliberately left in one of the sculptures. Wanderlust, Ww2, Soldier, World War Ii
