Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

this postcard is French from c1910.  published in Dakar, it could be anywhere in French West Africa.  The French signed treaties with the Tuareg (also spelled Touareg and Twareg) in Mali in 1905 and Niger in 1917; in Algeria, there were skirmishes even after this.
I always think of Volkswagens and wonder if they saw any images like this before naming their vehicle.

Maybe the VW marketers were thinking rather along those lines:
