https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franco-Trarzan_War_of_1825
Apparently Trarza had a monopoly on the trade of Acacia gum with France throughout the Napoleonic wars, an essential part of the French textile industry. Anyone know what the Trarza army consisted of?

This was my estimate
Probably:
1000 camelry with spear, shield
500 Tuereg scout camelry or cavalry, spear, sword
1500 Bedu infantry irregulars, spear, sword, some shields, some slings
2000 Banzou negro infantry with sling or spear

But I was asking if case any French speaking forum members had done research on it already and knew......

Hmmmm.
I believe it's a tribute to a rather obscure Norwich BBC radio presenter … "and Alan Partridge in a pear tree".
I understand he's keen on re-booting his TV career, so exactly how he has time to be climbing up fruit trees is beyond me. A ha.

Note to friends form the USA - hooters are noses on this side of the pond.

I'm sure Wellington never spoke said that.

2 injured (by neutral bears)

The implication here being there are also bears out there that haven't declared their neutrality? For whom do they fight?
