Indian Troops Clear an Arab Stronghold (1915)
I saw this page is for sale on e-bay by a Scottish dealer of ephemera (http://cgi.ebay.com/MESOPOTAMIA-ARAB-INDIAN-TROOPS-WAR-AMUSEMENT-1915_W0QQitemZ40000864). It's apparently from the Graphic July 24, 1915. Indian troops are shown besieging a stronghold of the Bani Turuf (sp?) tribe who had killed wounded British troops. I post it since it immediately brings scenario ideas to mind.
