You might want to give this another go. :D This is a campaign with which I'd like to be better versed, so I look forward to the image!

The Guardian newspaper in the UK has just published a set of recent photos from the Chitral region. These are not necessarily battlefield photos but highlight conditions in what is still a fairly remote region. You'll find the pictures at http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/gallery/2011/oct/17/pakistan-kalash-valley-taliban

Thank you for sharing the 'Guardian' report with us. I had no idea that there was so much more to Chitral, which I had known only from the 1895 battle there. It is such a pity that the local people and Chitral tourism should be threatened by political events over which they have no control.

Regards

Hi there, I have visited Chitral and passed through the Shandur pass - I hope to blog about it soon and will be sure to share. I have some nice pictures that I hope you will enjoy, thanks. Chris.

I was pleased to be reminded about this thread on Chitral. Earlier this year, I acquired a group of medals to a King's Royal Rifle Corps soldier who took part in the 'Relief of Chitral'. It was an interesting campaign in a fascinating part of the world.

Since I am a social-networking ignoramus, I doubt that a blog will brighten up my computer screen anytime soon, so that is disappointing.
