Above is a pic of Lt. Colonel James Galbraith, Regimental Colour in hand, alongside Bobbie the regimental dog and some of the other "Last Eleven" survivors of the 66th (Berkshire) Regiment, making their last stand in one of the walled gardens just South of Khig village, a few miles West of the Afghan town of Maiwand.

Colonel Galbraith, Regimental Colour of the 66th Regt. in hand...
Here's my converted mini of Colonel Galbraith, Regimental CO of the 66th, down on one knee, with sword in one hand and Regimental Colour in the other, beside regimental dog Bobbie, in one of the walled gardens of Khig, as he is pictured on the bas-relief sculpture commissioned by his siblings after his death at the Battle of Maiwand. The figure started out as an Empress Miniatures kneeling British Infantryman from their Anglo-Zulu War range. Some day soon I hope to post pics of the conversion process, which was a bit tricky.
