    Wikipedia - The Chasseurs d'Afrique (literally Huntsmen of Africa) were a light cavalry corps of chasseurs in the French Armée d'Afrique (Army of Africa). First raised in the 1830s from regular French cavalry posted to Algeria. At the outbreak of WWI in 1914, six regiments of Chasseurs d'Afrique were in existence. The 1er and 2e RCA had detached squadrons on active service in eastern Morocco while the four remaining regiments were on garrison duty in Algeria and Tunisia. Seven regiments of Chasseurs d'Afrique (including three regiments de marche or active service units created for a particular campaign) were transferred to France between 1914 and 1918. The 1er and 4e RCA ended the war in the Middle East fighting against the Turks, while the 5e RCA detached squadrons to serve in the Balkans.[1]
