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.

SURRENDER (YOUR CHARMING RULES)

 

Great battle report but the insults you hurl on Mulehead and the One True Rule will return as vipers to strike you on your path to Chitral and the sun will surely bleach your bones along side those of the treacherous Umra Khan and Buda Khan for your cheap tricks. 

--Quote from: CPT Shanks on November 16, 2021, 06:39:54 AM

After employing Tibetan Ninja Monks with cloaking ability to rescue his sister and her family from their comfortable guest quarters at the Malakand Cantonments, Capt. Shanks AKA: Gul Akbar Khan -- follower of the False Fakir Mulehead Khan, promoter of the Untrue Rules TMWBK, and notorious frontier brigand -- waxes poetic RE:"Buda Khan" and"Cheap Trick"...

This latest effrontery demands a riposte...

...with appropriate instrumental accompaniment for fans of the BUDOKAN:


SURRENDER (YOUR CHARMING RULES)

(with apologies to Rick Nielsen & Cheap Trick)

Umra told me, yes he told me
I'd meet False Fakirs like you
He also told me to stay away
'Cause you'd make me play those rules
Just the other day I heard 
Of a Malik gettin' axed
Just because he wouldn't accept
His "Leader Trait" rolls as fact


Mulehead’s alright, Akbar’s alright,
They just need to change their ways
Surrender, surrender
Accept the Sword and The Flame 


Mad Guru says Umra’s right
It’s really no surprise
Before he led his tribal host
Umra served in the Corps of Guides
Now I had heard the Guides recruited
Sikhs and Dogras for the war
But Umra Khan is pure Afridi
Of that you can be sure


Mulehead’s alright, Akbar’s alright,
They just need to change their ways
Surrender, surrender
Accept the Sword and The Flame


Whatever happened to the good old days
When most colonials agreed
Larry Brom was our patriarch
And we played his rules with glee
Then Mersey and Osprey gave us 
“The Men Who Would Be Kings”
Packed with color photos, wit and charm
A pox on all those things!


Mulehead’s alright, Akbar’s alright,
They just need to change their ways
Surrender, surrender
Accept the Sword and The Flame
The Flame


Surrender, surrender (Mulehead’s alright, Akbar’s alright)
Accept the Sword and The Flame
Surrender, surrender (Mulehead’s alright, Akbar’s alright)
Accept the Sword and The Flame
Surrender, surrender (Mulehead’s alright, Akbar’s alright)
Accept the Sword and The Flame
Surrender, surrender (Mulehead’s alright, Akbar’s alright)
Accept the Sword and The Flame
Surrender, surrender (Mulehead’s alright, Akbar’s alright)
Accept the Sword and The Flame
Surrender, surrender (Mulehead’s alright, Akbar’s alright)
Accept the Sword and The Flame
