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.

A MOST VILLAINOUS-LOOKING CAVALCADE - the Afghan Regular Army of the 19th Century
I've just created a NEW PAGE for this blog, displaying a set of 12 colour plates done by the somewhat legendary military historian and artist Ian Heath. Mr. Heath kindly and generously gave his permission for me to make this very difficult-to-find artwork of his easily available to the wargaming public, for which I THANK HIM PROFUSELY -- and if you're interested in the Afghan Regular Army, I suggest you do so as well!
If interested, you can instantly visit the new page by CLICKING here: LINK TO AFGHAN REGULAR ARMY ARTWORK PAGE -- or just move your cursor over to the right and find the "page" labelled "A Most Villainous-Looking Cavalcade"...
