    Hi there.

    The men on the right of the second photo wearing 'Arab style dress' look like north Africans, possibly Berbers.

    Hello, The background troops have French uniforms & equipment but don't look French. Here is what I found with more precision, from Wikipedia translated from French:

    In September 1918, the Allied Armies of the East (AAO) comprised nearly 670,000 men, including 210,000 French (8 divisions and a cavalry brigade); 157,000 Greeks (9 divisions); 138,000 British (4 divisions); 119,000 Serbs (6 divisions); 43,000 Italians. They caused the defeat of Bulgaria, reconquered Serbia and Romania, then invaded Austria-Hungary.

    From 1919, the French Army of the East became the Army of the Danube, the Army of Hungary and the Constantinople Occupation Corps. After the various armistices of 1918, French fighters were not immediately demobilized. Some participated in the occupation of Hungary, Bulgaria and part of Thrace. Others fought in South Russia until March 1919 in the Odessa region. Finally, others occupied Constantinople. The last French soldiers returned after the closure of the Salonika base at the beginning of 1921.
