The Mad Emir's New Mercenaries





The Mad Emir of El Shakoosh Kabir (deuced more dangerous as he was educated at Eton) has recruited a new mercenary Camel corps of very vicious warriors of unknown origin. In Italian reports one of their cavalry squadrons was all but wiped out by these horrid louts. It was even discovered by a relief force that all the horses were slain and several of those apparently cooked and eaten! The lone survivor of this attack a Cpl dispatched by his commander to report on the attack said that he saw these attackers hit several times at close range by rifle fire with no apparent effect! It has also been rumored that these mercenaries have been seen in other regions of Kookanyika and are responsible for several native massacres, even the destruction of a formidable Wazulu war party. There is no exact knowledge of their numbers but it seems to be no more than 60 odd, but there may be more. This constitutes a major provocation on the part of the Emir , and the colonial powers are expected to respond forcefully soon...
