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.

PACIFICON cont'd (11/25)

Much later in the game, the Afghan Regular Infantry assault the British position, which remains centered on the pair of RHA guns, Bombay Grenadiers having filled in to the guns' own right (East), Sappers & Miners to the left (West)...

The roll of 3 on 2xD6 meant something bad happeed to the Afghans as I recall -- I think it was a morale check in the aftermath of the melee that led to their retreat...
