WW1 in East Africa - Pt.3

Here are the last 2 pictures of my Brits in East Africa:

Officers, NCOs, machine-guns and an artillery piece (from various sources).

Some Indians & Arabs (ex Mahdists) plus Brit mtd officer.

On the DBM front this week Patrician Roman faced off against Late Roman (Eastern) - yet another Roman civil war!  Terrain meant that one-third of the board was never used.  The Patricians deployed all 4 commands in one half of the table with 2 in front of 2.  The Later Romans were more strung out  and their first dice stalled their allied command.  In spite of a determined advance in the centre the LR camel command was hit by other camels (supported by bows) and broke.  It was only a matter of time before sufficient casualties were caused to take out half the army.  a 10:0 win to the Patricians.
