Six figures slip furtively through the shadows down a dark Peshawar alley. Avoiding the street detritus they move quietly, accustomed to working in the darkened recesses of urban decay, they quickly assess the status of the crushers guarding their intended target,  the Peshawar Tribune Building. Their timing is impeccable as the the extra bottles of gin slipped to two of the guards earlier in the evening were having the intended consequence.  For these former "Company men" this would be a bit of all right.

Awesome number of the Peshawar Tribune, as usual.
It is a pleasure to receive copies of the newspaper in the outposts lost in the mountains, or in the elite circles of The Punjab.
Even among the proud Pashtun the reading of Pesha is a must!

The great success reached by last Pesh Trib issue (see link https://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=131610.600) has convinced our editor to publish some illustrated extra inserts to describe also the colourful uniforms of our heroes, not all in khaki as you will see.
First drawings come from Jandola and are related to Political Officer Col.Nicholson column in march from Jandola straight in the flank of Powinda Mullah ruffians.
The column is composed by Col Nicholson, his staff and four units. First drawings are related to the column leaving Jandola Col. Murchison entrenched camp:


 
And now in more detail the units
Yellow boys, 1st Skinner Bengal lancers:


15th Sikh Ludhiana
 

14th Sikh Ferozepore


 34th Sikh Pioneers
 
 
In honor of these pride Sikhs we report hereafter the poem written by our R.Winkle “the old Havildar”, already published in Peshwar tribune (see link: https://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=131610.msg1735565#msg1735565) and we are happy to spoiler that soon a book with all his poems will be published and booking is already started, so don’t miss the opportunity to assure you a copy of his last masterpiece!

The old Havildar
Beneath an ancient bodhi-tree,
Fast by the Kabul's tide,
In silent thought sat Paramjit Singh,
A Khalsa havildar of the Queen;
He mused on things now done and past,
For he had reached his home at last,
His empty sleeve his pride.
Ten years before a  Ludhiana lout,
beneath the self same tree,
He met an officer on a horse with creamy mare,
who’d come with honeyed words
and the intriguing beat of drum,
Cajoling all who glory sought,
and telling how the regiments fought
The Waziri and the Afridi clans
With shouts of victory.
WaheGuru Ji ! Rang in his ears,
The famous battlecry  of war
And since those day Paramjit, getting higher rank
On Punjabi plains, from Peshawar
To fierce Bannu and mighty Tank
‘Mid festering bogs and scenery of hell
Now I’m havildar he said and I learnt
How Khalsa soldiers died and fell.
And a sorrow grim fades his sight
But all they witness how Khalsa can fight
And he knows his village brothers have seen
He got a medal with the name of the Queen!
And now he rides a creamy mare horse
And cajols in the villages with honeyed words “of course
No one got more glory than Khalsa force!”

More fodder for the frontier. The Peshawar Tribune will have to put out a separate copy for the casualty list too. Such hubris will be rewarded with jezail and tulwar.

Powindah
 

Idak, a little village close to Tochi river, whose lazy waves slip slowly eastwards  in an idyllic atmosphere of peace and rest suddenly broken by voices loudly roaring in the not far Mullah Powindah’s camp.
“Ghaffar khan, dear son,after the great battle of Ghuam Khan Kalay “ Powindah Mullah roared “where my nephew Kabir found his martyrdom, we need to re-organize our forces”
For detail on the battle see link: https://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=131610.450
“Devoted followers informed me that an Anglez force is coming from Jandola. Leader is a well known ferenghee, political officer col Nicholson, and his quick move could have been devastating.

If the jandola merchants have not had informed us we should have been taken unaware on the flank and definitely routed.

Their flanking manoeuvre must pass through Sarobi and there Jammas Khan has regrouped the wazirirs who fought in the triumph of Ghuam Khan Kalay battle.

I personally selected each and every one before coming from Khost and they are all valorous and now with a boosted morale, they are willing and anxious becoming martyrs, but numbers matter, and they alone cannot stop the advancing column.
But they can gain time to spring our counter trap. You will regroup the new tribesmen joining the Holy army after the victory, many are disbanded waziris from Taras’army after his death, other are our faithful Shabi Khel Mahsuds like you and me and many Khostwal cavalrymen. With all these warriors you march directly to Sarobi to support Jammas Khan and, with the help of the surprise, gain a tremendous victory deleting the column danger.


Afterwards we can march on Mir Ali Mirali and get the fruit that Taras missed to pick up,
Our tribesmen reported that crazy ferenghee Fully is marching northwards with many soldiers, leaving the village ready for a new Khan and a new Rule.
Go and win. I will protect you with this holy flag of Jihad!

Sarobi will be the grave of martyrdom of many true followers but their sacrifice will be not in vain.
After the storming of Mir Ali Mirali all waziris will accept that we are the predestined and we will be strong enough to attack Bannu while our brother Mohammad Sarwar Khan will defeat the Anglez in Jandola.
But one step at the time: go and destroy Ferenghees in Sarobi!

To get the overall picture we recommend you to buy last extra insert of Pesh Trib, see link https://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=131610.600, but the situation is evolving so quickly that better getting a subscription to be kept constantly updated.
Will Nicholson yellow devils break through Jammas Khan defences? Or will him succeed in stopping and pinning them, giving Ghaffar Khan the time to destroy them?
To be cont’d

At thebvillage of Wana at the heart of Waziri terriyory a messenger arrives with news from Torghar for Mulehead Khan.
https://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=131610.585

Mulehead Khan, Amir of Waziristan Light of El Osprey, Annointed by Mersey to bring truth to all of the tribes and chastisement to those who would not listen. I bear only the truth as I know it.
As you know the humble mullah of Tarkhee has arrived to martyr or redeem Gul Akbar. Gul's redemption and return to the light is true. He is even now planning his next campaign which will demonstrate clesrly his return to the fold. 
The mullah has also declared that Mullah Pawinda is to be trusted as a great ally, kept at your right hand until the ferenghi are driven from Waziri lands. Even if your son returns it would be well for you to keep Mullah Pawinda close, if not closer.

For now the snows are already creeping into the deep valleys and ravines of the Torghar and we will adjourn for the winter except for punishment of the Chagharzais who attempted to raise the ire of the Britishers and turn their attentions against us. We will raid their villages in kind to recover what was destroyed by the Raj forces. We will drive them from our beautiful mountain home to the slums of Abbottabad and Peshawar and end their line for they're betrayal. After that we shall retire for the winter.

Please retain my nephew Yousef Ahmed, the deliverer of this message, as tribute and demonstration of our continued support.  His ability to lead warriors cannot be bested, but he does lack hunger in the attack, preferring instead to remain in the sangars and woods and direct jezail fire against our foes. Stalling their advance or harranguing their retreat, as we say in Torghar, shooting them in the face or biting at their backsides. He will serve you best in that capacity.

Your humble servant

M. Hashim Ali

I believe that Mulehead should fear Yousef Ahmed's ability to shoot in the back...
