Battle in the Sudan

We decided on an ambush attack, the Egyptians marching in column with cavalry protecting the rear.  The Mahdists on both sides.
The Mahdists were sighted and charged the left front of the column.

the attack faulted but drew the attention away from the camels sneaking up behind.  I know it is impossible for a camel to sneak,  but the other guy just ignored them.
the rear of the column formed square but sent in the cavalry who were surrounded and swamped.

Camels hit the forward column in the rear, but they turned to face and killed most of them, however with their backs turned the mahdists butchered them.
