You know, there is a question- I have heard reference to many Martini's, etc. being found in Afghanistan, but what did happen to all of the British swords and other accoutrements that must have been picked up by the Afghans? Have any been found? One would think the bazaars of Kabul must have had some interesting British relics. On some of the arms forums there are servicemen who have brought swords back, but all the ones I have read about were native pieces.
