Here, both groups from behind. Far away, the group of flagbearers mentioned at the beginning of the post. See enlargement below. Also, the following guys marching at the end will be in the first photo of the next post.

This is the ideal sequence needed to identify all the contingent of each state. It hardly happens

29 Africans and musicians
64 Footmen with Arab musicians
12 Mounted irregulars

As you can also see, the list in the program is not accurate in some cases. The camel riders are not mentioned within the list of participants, nor is mentioned an elephant. At least one must have been there since the state elephant was in the Main Procession.
