Relatively few regular cavalry served with Napoleon in Egypt. Here, however is one of the exceptions. This bugler has adapted to the local weather conditions. He also carries a "Mameluke-style" sabre.

Faced with a desperate shortage of cavalry in Egypt, Napoleon ordered the formation of a regiment mounted on camels! Instead of using regular cavalry he chose infantrymen from his many demi-brigades to make up the strength of his new unit. These soldiers enjoyed the same privileges and pay as Dragoons and were uniformed in, as Napoleon described it, "The Oriental Style" with huge offwhite cloaks and baggy, loose fitting pantaloons.
