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.
