1915 – August 29

Early morning got orders to march out the Khyber Moveable column [see also 1st June 1915] as the Mohmands are really on the move at last. Marched at 6 p.m. Frightful heat, the Kings fell out 50% and the native troops were not much better. Camped at Nagoman on the Cabal [now known as Kabul] River, we just lay down as we were.

[See also this, which is a history of the King’s Regiment (Liverpool), and which makes reference to this date.]

    • That’s really fascinating, Ben – thank you very much for sharing. I shall enjoy looking through that page. I know various people who would be interested too.

      It makes me wonder if your grandfather and my great-grandfather ever crossed paths. They must have done! ‘Stalky’ also ended up in the Middle East/Caucasus region.
