Photograph showing a British army camp with men of 1 Company, Royal Horse Artillery, posed in the foreground, taken by John Burke in 1878 near the Safed Koh mountain range which runs from east to west at the north-westerly end of the great Himalayan Range.
The British army camped at Safed Sang during the Second Anglo-Afghan War (1878-80) as there was a good water supply in the valley. However it was also stony, treeless, dusty and very exposed. The camp was in a strategically important position in the North West Frontier Province on the route from Peshawar (now in Pakistan) to Kabul (Afghanistan).

Very nice, Peshawar was much less crowded during that time. Also cleaner.
