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.

Afghan Regular infantry advances through mountain pass...

My 11 year-old daughter put this picture together for me and I think it turned out pretty well. For many years I've wanted to do this sort of thing but have never broke down and paid for Photoshop (I'm a bit of a cheap b@$#@*%), but she did it using PAGES. Now I may have to break down and buy a copy of Photoshop for the entire family to use, so long as everyone agrees to do some miniature wargaming pics for use on this blog.


  1. Excellent photo! Kudos to your daughter; she does good work.

    Who made the Afghan regulars?

  2. The Afghan Regulars are from Wargames Foundry. This is his daughter so thanks for the comment!
