The ramblings of a wargamer, originally up a valley in a wet and windy place and now back in civilisation.

Dr. BRYDEN, THE "SOLE SURVIVOR" OF THE KABUL GARRISON, 1st Afghan War
Immortalised in Lady Butler's painting, the good doctor was actually one of well over 100 "Sole survivors" from the ill-fated Kabul garrison and it's retreat through the Kyber Pass. ( see Here) Nontheless this figure (from Studio Miniatures) captures the exhausted doctor on his arrival outside Jellalabad. I have no immediate plans for the 1st Afghan War as a project but it would make a great vehicle for Sharpe Practice. In the meantime this figure will find a home amongst the Sikh Wars collection.
