Thank you for the article - it was most interesting and it obvious that your interviewee certainly has a passion for Maiwand.
I celebrated the day in style - had superb luncheon at an Indian establishment in Central London, quite near Baker Street where a certain doctor by the name of John Watson shared rooms with a well known detective. Watson of course served with the 66th at Maiwand and was wounded
- with a couple of like minded friends and we toasted absent friends and 'The Heroes of Maiwand'.
It was good to get out as I do not do so much these days. My health is not what it should be and I have had to give up many activities.
