I'm trying to learn more about what the 7th (Rand) Intelligence Corps did during the campaign in German S/W Africa, 1914-15.
As I understand it, they likely fulfilled the role of scouts, which (if correct) is a bit easier for me to conceptualise. Nevertheless, can any one give me any suggestions regarding potential sources outlining their movements, operations and/or actions during that Campaign?
One of the problems I am facing is that (to my understanding) there were three columns which advanced into German S/W Africa during this campaign, and, (since I don't have an Order of Battle), I don't know to which column they were attached. Are there any OrBats available for this campaign? (That would at least be a start.)
Grateful, as always, for any thoughts.

Try here too: http://www.kaiserscr...117/40726.html. They were assigned to HQs Brigade.
The Intel Corps did act as mounted scouts and often were the first skirmishers to come into action.
