Like all the troopers, he fed and watered her before he ate and drank himself. He groomed her before he washed off the desert dust coating his own body.

They lurched across the plain in a cloud of dust and delivered their cameliers into the fray. Shortly afterwards, the camel transports rode up with the much-needed fanatis of water for the thirsty horses and men.
