The officer added that the camels huddled together and behaved like "a bunch of disciplined school children awaiting the return of their class teacher" while a battle was going on a few hundred yards away. headedness by rolling swiftly on the ground. The purpose of using camels In desert warfare Is to carry he.tropps as near the enemy as possible. Normally, the animals are left about 1,000 yards behind the combat lines.

In the event of air attack, the camels scatter, although some of them have been known to bury their heads under the sand. Water is a problem. Contrary to popular belief, camels can not survive for long without drinking water, and there are few oases in the Great Indian Desert of northwest India. The camel training ground Is about 12 miles from Bika-ner, a former princely state. Its founder-ruler raised the first camel corps in 1465 A.D. During a recent exercise more than 500 battle ready camels stood along a series of sand dunes.

The order came.
