Third Afghan War - Afghan Peace Delegates
Amir Amanullah Khan ordered a ceasefire to the Third Afghan War on 3rd June 1919. His ambitious plans to reclaim Peshawar and throw the British out of India had failed. On the other hand the Treaty of Rawalpindi (1919) that brought the war to an end did recognise full Afghan independence and finally gave the Afghans the right to conduct their own foreign affairs. This may have been Amanullahs real goal. For the British, the Durand Line, long a contentious issue between the two nations, was reaffirmed as the political boundary separating Afghanistan from the North West Frontier. The Afghans also agreed to stop interfering with the tribes on the British side of the line. This card shows the Afghan peace delegates reaching the British lines. Date: 1919
