contaminating their patients, offered to serve for a time in the Nomad
The doctors were distributed amongst the various
regiments. As they were unaccustomed to combat, they developed a
knee-jerk reaction of proffering insults and colourful interjections in
their native tongue, whilst trying to stabilize the Nomad soldiers in
the middle of cross-fire. This miscellaneous string of insults and
improprieties established itself as a kind of calming mantra for the
wounded, who knew when they heard it, that they were saved. In this way,
the Swahili tongue became a kind of battle language for the Daks, the
Nomad Campaign Doctors.
