The Square at Abu Klea

This diagram shows the position of the various components of the Camel Corps formation that they maintained as they advanced across the desert. They were dismounted for the action at Abu Klea but for most of the journey they were camel-mounted. The five companies of the Heavy Camel Regiment made up the back of the square and lower part of the left side.
