Photo's of Forts in Second Afghan War?

Postby Atheling » 27 Feb 2015 07:37

Hi,

I'm in the process of gathering info and images o the type of small fortifications like watchtowers etc for the Second Afghan War.

I wonder if anyone has any pictures they could please share?

I intend to build an approx 1/56 model.

There are some photographs of small frontier forts 1917 in this Great War Forum thread, which may be the type of structure you are looking for. How, to view the photos you do need to be a logged in member of the GWF, however you could register.

There are also some links to photographs on the FIBIS Fibiwiki page 2nd Afghan War, where you might see something suitable, although i couldn't see anything on a quick look.

Hi Maureen,

I've just registered at the GWF, I'm just waiting for the admin to approve my memership.

In the meantime i'll be searching through the wiki archives.

Thanks for the reply 8) .

seen your enquiry posted elsewhere. There is a splendid book called the Army in India 1850-1914, a Photographic Record, published by Hutchinson in association with the National Army Museum in 1968 which has a picture of a working party from 8th King's Regimeent, which might be of interest for the structure in the background.

I'll have a good look for the book you have suggested. If I can't get a copy online I'll try the local library.

Thanks for your input :) .
