Afghan War Database

Postby Garen » 22 Apr 2014 20:59

I have just completed a mini-project on my Anglo-Afghan War Database - researching officers of the 25th King's Own Borderers, 43 officers in all.

With all the resources now available - census, service records, India documents, online museum archives, newspaper archives and good old general Googling, they're starting to take up quite a bit of time, but also becoming a little more detailed. The current count stands at 1,137 individuals.

Also complete are officers of the 72nd Foot and surgeons on the Kabul-Kandahar march.

More to come!

It's an excellent resource Garen and one which you should be proud of. I got lost in it one morning and didn't find my way back out until several hours later. I have a man I can add to your database that I researched. I'll be in touch with the details.
