Panjdeh incident - Russian encounter with Afghan forces at Pul-i-Khishty (Brick Bridge)

Panjdeh incident - Russian encounter with Afghan forces at Pul-i-Khishty (Brick Bridge) . The 'incident' of 1885 was a diplomatic crisis between the British Empire and the Russian Empire caused by Russian expansion south-eastwards towards the Emirate of Afghanistan and the British Raj (India). After nearly completing the Russian conquest of Central Asia (Russian Turkestan) Russian forces captured an Afghan border fort. Seeing a threat to India, Britain came close to threatening war but both sides backed down and the matter was settled by diplomacy. The effect was to stop further Russian expansion in Asia, except for the Pamir Mountains and to define the north-western border of Afghanistan. Date: 1885

Elephants pull steam roller & motors for Amir of Afghanistan

The most remarkable caravan that ever entered Afghanistan - a steam roller and motors for the Ameer. Ten elephants sent to Chaman to convey a steam roller, a motor car, a stone-crushing machine and a motor boat to Cabul (Kabul). All intended to improve road systems in Afghanistan and for the Amir to be able to travel to the outer reaches of his dominions in days rather than weeks. Date: 1909

From a CD of 309 images.David Cameron and the shadow Defence Secretary, Liam Fox MP, visited troops in Helmand Province. The MPs were on a fact finding mission and came to visit British Commanders, Governmental Agencies and troops currently serving in the province. During their visit the MPs visited troops at the British base in Lashkar Gah, the provincial town of Helmand. Lashkar Gah is home to the Provincial Reconstruction Team, an organisation made up of military and governmental agencies. It is their mission to provide a secure and safe environment in Helmand Province as well as assisting the Afghan government and local authorities build a strong government and create jobs. David Cameron and Liam Fox met with the British Forces Commander in Afghanistan, Brigadier Ed Butler and Commander Helmand Task Force, Colonel Charlie Knaggs, before meeting troops from the Provincial Reconstruction Team Operations Company. Later they were then shown around British military vehicles which included a Snatch Landrover and a Weapons Mount Installation Kit (WMIK) Land Rover. These vehicles are the primary means of transport for the Operations Company which daily carries out patrols in the Lashkar Gah area. These patrols can at times be in a 50 degree heat for 20 hours. The Operations Company also works very closely with the local Afghan National Army (ANA) and National Police (ANP), mentoring them on security matters and carrying out joint operations.This image was taken on Operation HERRICK IV, the UK's deployment into Helmand Province, Southern Afghanistan.
