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.

The Muzeo VIDEO
Can't believe I never posted a LINK to the excellent video my buddy Matthew created for the Maiwand game we ran down at the Muzeo museum in Anaheim, California! I believe I posted this link on TMP (The Miniatures Page) but seems to me it should be here on the Maiwand Day blog as well, so without further ado, if you'd like to enjoy about 10 minutes of Second-Afghan-War visual pageantry, both historical and miniature wargaming-ical, as well as some choice battle scenes from ZULU! and THE CHARGE OF THE LIGHT BRIGADE (Director Tony Richardson's 1968 version), with accompanying British military and Afghan tribal music, please click on the link below:
