It is not "cavalieri" they had camels.

I have gruppo cammellato Tuaregh in DEC40 in SETTORE GHERIAT - probably also there in Jun40, in Apr1941 in Ghat.

No specifics but i have this about camel units:

Quote

I reparti cammellati si dividevano in squadroni, gruppi sahariani e batterie. Gli squadroni avevano una consistenza variabile da 400 uomini, con 400 mehara e 60 dromedari da carico a 300 uomini, 300 mehara e 40 dromedari da carico. L’armamento individuale era costituito dal moschetto mod. 91 T.S. e dalla pistola mod.1889. La sezione mitragliatrici era su due armi e ne aveva una di riserva. Ogni squadrone si divideva in 4 plotoni, ma spesso si frazionava in nuclei ancora più piccoli che operavano isolati.


So not much.

Compagnie meharisti del fezzan - another camel unit:

Jun1940 (comando + 4 plt's) 8 Officers+5 NCO +4 Italians+301 Lybians+389camels+26 pistols+306 rifles+13LMG
Dec40 (comando + 3 plt's+HMG plt) 4ª Plt transformed into MG plt. The unit now has 12 LMG and 6 HMG

Dili. That sounds like the unit I meant, as it was in Gheriat in December 1940.
