Dear All

Does anyone have a source for Spahi uniforms, equipment and horse furniture for 1918.

I have: Uniform and horse furniture 1914; Photo from 1916 showing steel helmet with 1914 uniform; detail sof kit in Salonika 1917; details of WW2 kit.

But...nothing from W Front 1918. Any References?

The only source on French Colonial Cavalry in the Great War I know is in this book:

Jacques Sicard & François Vauvillier: Les Chasseurs d'Afrique. L'Encyclopédie de l'Armee Française.
Histoire & Collections, 1999 ISBN: 2 098 182 874

Pages 40 to 59 deal with the First World War, heavy emphasis on uniforms.
