Unknown Medal - Camel - Spinks and Son

Recommended Posts

And how, one wonders, did it make its way to Calgary, Alberta, Canada. No there would be a story for the next contest! As far as I know, even at our infamous 'Camp Mirage' - the non-existant Canadian air base in Yemen - the CF never had a Camel Corps. Unlike the US Army! True story - look it up.

Maybe they had a camel section in the Calgary Stampede.


Ah, of course! How silly of me not to have remembered. In the pens next to the yak milking exhibit, no doubt! :whistle:

The funny thing is that in the 1920's they did have Camel racing at the Stampede......

But because of the flooding they had to cancel them this year.....
