This frankly astonishing photograph of Samia Gamal is not an April Fool's Photoshop job, I assure you.
Taken from the Vintage Photographs of Burlesque Dancers tumblr, it purports to show Samia in training with Egypt's National Liberation Army, for which she volunteered in 1956.
1956, I need hardly tell you, was the year of the Suez Crisis aka the Second Arab-Israeli War. It was also the year that Samia's American husband, Shepherd King III, dumped her for Turkish dancer Nejla Ates, but I'm sure that that couldn't have had anything to do with Samia deciding to learn how to use a rifle.
Please keep your "shooting from the hip" jokes to yourself.
