In this still (by @julienmcroberts) from our forthcoming film "March or Die 2: The Lost Oasis," I drive a World War I vintage vehicle through the Libyan Desert, with a French Saharan Officer, and we have just spotted the lost "Oasis of the Little Birds," Zerzura. Reported in medieval Arabic manuscripts and nineteenth and early twentieth century accounts, explorers such as Maj. Ralph Bagnold, later founder of the Long Range Desert Group, and "Count" Almasy, who unsuccessfully attempted to emulate Bagnold's desert raiders on behalf of the Axis Powers with his Sonderkommando Almasy (and later and impossibly transmogrified into a hero in "The English Patient" and also forming the basis for Ken Follett's 1980 novel "The Key to Rebecca") also hoped to find the oasis. In the end, it appears to be confused reference to the seasonally watered wadis of the great Gebel Uweinat at the far southwestern corner of modern Egypt. "March or Die," the Foreign Legion 1977 actioner to which I allude, itself contains a story of archaeologists searching for a lost tomb of the "Angel of the Desert," a plot line almost certainly based on Bryon Khun de Prorock's 1925, Legion escorted expedition to find the burial of the semi-mythical Tin Hinan, queen progenitor of the Tuareg. Improbably enough, he appears to have been successful (more on that before long). I wear a pith helmet from @oldasadam and jodphur suit from @domesticrebus and a 1918 commemorative belt, and John wears an original WW1 fFrench foreign legion officers tunic with a slightly later kepi of a lieutenant colonel commanding spahis, holding the binoculars of the French military cartographer René Archimbaud. So happy to have been a part of #CampDoughboy !
