Somewhere between Sambaza and Manzai on the dusty path that crosses Mughai Kot, a caravan moves slowly meandering between mountains and ravines, it is a long line of mules and camels, the bearers and men of the mountain that accompany it are nervous,  perhaps the contents of the crates are valuable and very important...and also dangerous....
Pattern 1853 Enfield, Lebel model 1886, Gras model 1874, Remington rolling block, Berdan and ammunitions, and a special present for Mulehead  Khan ( aka  the False Fakir of Waziristan ) a Colt Walker with ivory grip.
may Allah the Merciful protect these men from the fury of the Feringhi and make his faithful find their way to Manzai.

June 12th 1890 Sir I respectfully send to you the summary of the conversations that the bandit Mulehead had with few messengers from  Khirgi and three sketches of the meeting not far from his  fortified tower and that were  reported by our spy still hidden in the roof of his tower.
Humble servant   Tanas Singh, Subedar 2 Sikh company of Guides PFF.
in a fortified tower in Waziristan:
Mighty Mulehead, Light of Waziris, true Khan of all the lands between Delhi and Kabul, protector of widows and orphans, Defenser of True Rule, Light of Faith, a messenger is just arrived with news from El Growly. He has heard news about a column of few Guides moving towards Manzai. In order to prevent any unlikely meeting with the reinforcements coming from Kajuri Karg he has left the safe fort in Kirghi and is moving towards Manzai to intercept the column and if possible steel the Guides’ horses and collect some new heads for the next Polo tournament. Then rifles will be escorted back to Jandala to provide new weapons to your invincible Army, Khan of the followers of True justice, and we’ll follow your instructions: “peace is just an apostrophe between the words I’ll kill you and a pause for the warriors to allow reloading”

From the Tank base a quick column under the orders of the vigilant and slouching Capt. Carruthers, made up of 300 rifles of the 5th Gurkhas and 200 rifles of the 6th Punjabis, climbing the hills in the direction of Manzai.
The information received from the faithful Tanas Singh
speaks of Waziris gathering in anticipation of receiving
 a load of weapons intended for the impostor Mulehead Khan .
The task of the smart Capt. Carruthers is to intercept the weapons dealer, capture the evil  El Growly and impose taxes on the village for providing assistance to the rioter.

Battle of Manzai 14th June 1890.
On approaching the Manzai village the troops under the command of Capt. Carruthers are under fire from a waziri lashkar; Carruthers orders alt and deploys two wings of Gurkhas in front of the enemy and keeps the other companies of the 6th Punjabis in reserve.






the Gurkhas with attached Leader Capt. Carruthers  open fire causing several hits, but despite this  a lashkar attempts to charge  but stops a few meters ( bad dice result not closing ) from the Gurkhas that shoot them precisely. and are forced to retreat.




Another wazir unit under the command of El Growly run to contact with the 2nd Gurkhas wing , the melee is very violent with heavy losses on both sides, ( but one waziri pushed back ) tipping the battle in favour of the Nepal's little men.






The battle of Manzai ended with El Growly on rout as many other Waziri's units.
What was a victory on the field for the Raj turns into a defeat because the caravan with the weapons managed to pass.

What remains vivid in gallant Carruthers' eyes was the speed with which El growly escaped.

Rumors are circulating throughout the Frontier, from Zhob Valley to Chitral and then up to the land of the Kanjutes, that the False Fakir  the Malicious Wazir has embraced the true faith and participated in a battle using the True Word "THE TSATF". ... after the battle , (which is the first World or Italy  TSATF online game )the Malicious Wazir literally said "nice, very funny".

It has already been used between Italy (Rome) and Philadelphia for depicting a holy clash between our brothers the Berbers and the infidel French colonizers supported by the traitors of their own people the Tirailleurs Algeriens ..at least it was a game between real men driven by TSATF and not mensaab and slaves or Haratin who use TMTWBK 😄

Humble servant   Tanas Singh, Subedar 2 Sikh company of Guides PFF.
in a fortified tower in Waziristan:
Noble Waziris, the Almighty Ruler gave his powerful blessing to me, his faithful and loyal humble servant, me the Mighty Mulehead, Light of Waziris, true Khan of all the lands between Delhi and Kabul, protector of widows and orphans, Defensor of True Rule, Light of Faith.
Messengers are just arrived with news from El Growly. One and only one was the important and significative result: getting rifles to Jandola and we succeeded. El Growly has been punished to have deviated from the True Path and the dice gave him an heavy warning message: you’ll never betray TMWWBK.
His tribesman are already rallying around his flag to harass the Gen Simmons kafiris if they will dare to go out from Tank.
But now my beloved sons let us raise the eyes to North: there my trap is snapping and Umra infidels and Feringhis will destroy each other.
And then with new rifles : TO TIRAHHH
Italwars, son of a blind jackall reveal your true name, accept the new Rules and march under my flags to destroy the Swat and his renegated khan the Mad Guru!
Sergt Guinnes declare your faith and bring me the Mad’s head with or without the rest of his body and I will nominate you Khan of all the Swat.
To the North brothers,to Bannu sons,  to the North!!!

In the meantime Umra Khan The Legend , who is a rich and wise man, having learned of a caravan of weapons and ammunitions moving on the Frontier, hired the caravan leader and bought all the cargo at double the market price.
After paid the weapons dealer Umra instructs his henchmen to cut his throat and recover the money.
Now the weapons are in the Umra's stronghold!
The scribes will write down this  story and the poets will  tell about this robbery  in the long winter evenings , they will cheer the fires of the Afridis and of The Sage among the Wise , the Mighty among the Mighty ... Umra the Legendary .
So be it written, so be it done!

But the wise Mulehead had given the right dispositions and rifle shutters were in a different caravan...

Well done, Umra, my son!

Meanwhilst, RE: these "rifle shutters" broached by HIM WHO MUST NOT BE NAMED (aka: Il False Fakir of Waziristan)... might that be a  damp-minded, palaver-challenged allusion to... triggers? barrels? breeches? bolts?  Fear not, pertaineth the wise, nor allow these minor complicados to get thy turban in a twist, as the threat from he who knows not the proper terms for rifle parts is of middling to trifle quantitative reasoning at best unhinged!  So quote the Faithful from Mecca to Karbala and back to Medina via the Memphis roundabout.

Hear me now, listen to me tomorrow and forget me not under yesterday's bloodshot moon rise: this disturbance in the force of the true texts of the Blessed and promotion of false Infidel texts here in the Land of the Faithful has ECHOED ACROSS THESE HARSH WASTES WE CALL HOME!  You have sown the wind, Il Giorgio False Fakir of Waziris... so shall you REAP THE WHIRLWIND!  Look to the mountains and hilltops that surround the petit squat valley your tiny troops call home... and let your evil eyes grow ever wider and wider still with shock and awe.  So I predict... so I edict.

YES -- from across the horizons of the distant 'stans, our metal minions are coming for you, Fakiri!!!

El Quartah my son, The Almighty Ruler is blessing your actions, the trap is working! My messages have been intercepted by spies of infedels and I’m still laughing if I think to them trying to understand the fake words I included. They will discover what is missing in their rifles when they will try to use them!
I have heard of your valorous action against the Feringhis, you fired on them and they did not spare the village I gave to Umra. So now I have his carovans and he has nothing.
This is the destiny for the one who follows the wrong Ruler, devoted to a Mad who is just able to shout “Bid ah” against any innovation, but the Almighty Ruler provided us new rules to get the same pleasure using less figures, and He said is only with good Dice that you can succeed. The wheel of the History is turning over the Mad of fools and his devotees, people without a name of Khan or, like Umra, thief and perjury.
Umra’s kafiris will try to revenge on Feringhi and we will harvest the fruits of our strategy: you will attack the Umra’s jackals when they are depleted and tired , so  Spinwam will be mine again and than we’ll march to Darra to burn the new house built by Umra, he is a coward and unable to fight but damn’d good with forts and houses building.  Umra is a thief and it is written in the Holy Rules that for crime of theft  "to the thief,  cut off his hands": a punishment by way of example for his crime: which is generated by the false lessons by the Mad of Shat.
When I will be the Khan of all Tirah we will go to Swat where I have some credits to collect, specifically one head of the Guru of Infidels!
Keep high morale and be loyal to your Khan, I got messages that the brothers in faith of our beloved friend Sgt Guinness are already marching to join us in the triumphal campaign, he is hidden in the shadow , will hit sudden like a tiger and all Swat will be under his wise governance under the shield of my Army. Italwars choose a name worthy of a Khan and complete the encirclement of the Infidels. Great glory is promised to the Ruler for the One who follows the right Rules, aka TMWWBK.

Spinwam June 17th
From Col Fullerton to Gen Davenport
Sir, my best respects to you. I am happy to inform you that following your order I am directing towards Bannu. We have been attacked near the village of Spinwam where I am actually and we had to react , As you well know here there are  only rough hills to be penetrated, robber fastnesses to be scaled, and dwellings containing people, all of them to a man concerned in hostilities.

To spare this village would be about as reasonable as to spare the commissariat supplies  of a civilized enemy. Operation included the destruction of Pashtun village, crops, concealed provisions, and supplies of water.
I can proudly say that we have created the maximum inconvenience and total bankruptcy for these uncivilized bandits.
Now we can safely proceed towards Bannu to re-join with your brigade main column.
It is important to underline that the village was one of Umra's new acquisitions, so we have to utterly disbelieve this bandit self proclaiming our friend.
Faithfully
Col Fullerton

I Samir Dad third cousin of Umra's (may his name always be remembered ) maternal grandfather's brother's uncle, inform you  Omar the Beautiful ,Sword of Believers , that a column of Feringhi from Spinwam is going to cross  by the pass of Gulla Jan Kot.
Can the Feringhi taste the cold steel of the blades of the Afridis, and the bullets that Umra (may his name always be remembered ) has stolen to the Malicious Wazir, and will kill the Feringhi  for the right Faith ,aka TSATF .
Fullerton Sahib and his Feringhi will be defeated by their own Creed, the infernal TMWWBK will open the doors of their hell where they will burn forever for their sins.
So be it written, so be it done!

Umra The Immense , Father of all the Afridis, is too "faithful " to the English and cannot give this order of attack, which I do , His humble servant
