WWI AskariManufacture Product Number : HTI-8268
Askari were the native troops employed by the Germans (and others) to defend and police their African possessions. The usual rule was that the ordinary rank and file were native, and the officers and NCOs were European, although in German South-West Africa all the soldiers were European. Elsewhere naturally this meant the Askari greatly outnumbered their colonial masters, and could have been a source for rebellion etc., but those in the German colonies were remarkably loyal, and served them well even during the long cat-and-mouse campaign during the First World War when a German Army consisting mostly of native troops avoided capture or destruction at their hands of their Allied pursuers.
