Dogs as Riffians during Melillan Campaign

During the Mellilan campaign in Morocco where Spanish troops fought against local Riffian forces, the Riffians dressed up dogs in turbans and burnous and sent them out from point to point in front of the Spanish soldiers. From a distance, the dogs looked very like a man crawling along the ground and tended to draw fire during which time, the Riffians were able to take advantage and shoot at the Spanish. Scenes witnessed by the famous dog trainer Major Edwin Richardson who travelled to the seat of war with an ambulance dog. He described what he had seen to the ILN special artist, H. W. Koekkoek. Date: 1909
