Overview

The Arabs and French Foreign Legion were released at same time, 1975 and deleted around 1978. It remains unclear as to who the designed the Arabs and French Foreign Legion) though in Peter Cole's book he speculates that the design and release dates would suggest it was Norman Sillman (who took over from Cameron when enticed into exclusive contract with Airfix).

Arab Foot and Mounted

There were six foot soldiers and six mounted, consistent with almost all Deetail sets. There appears to be fewer of these on the market and when good quality set come up on ebay they go for higher prices that some of the more popular sets (Wildwest and Medieval).
