Representative questions that can be answered with this resource:

  • What did the UK’s Staffordshire Regiment look like in action?
  • What did a M-270 Multiple Launch Rocket System look like?
  • Where can I find a picture of a camel in a truck?
  • What did air ambulances look like during the Persian Gulf War?


This resource is organized into 13 numbered galleries, plus one “Gulf War Photo Sampler.” Some of the galleries are labelled allowing for this listing by subject:

  • Allies (UK only) – Gallery 3
  • Aviation – Galleries 4 & 5
  • Base operations – Galleries 6 & 7
  • Camels – Gallery 8
  • Combat service support – Gallery 9
  • Miscellaneous – Galleries 1 & 2 plus “Gulf War Photo Samplers”
  • Patriot Air Defense System – Gallery 10
  • Tracked vehicles – Galleries 11 & 12
  • Wheeled vehicles – Gallery 13

Each of the photographs is captioned, and clicking on a photo will bring up a higher resolution photo. As these photos were taken by US government employees in the course of their duties, the photos are in the public domain and could be used in book illustrations.
