Do you have any details about the 13th Regiment of Foot's journey from Agra (where it was based) through to the battle of Ghazni on 23 July 1839? I have some very general info on the route they took and some dates, but the detail is proving hard to find! Pointers to primary sources would be great if you are aware of any.

There are a number of accounts available from the 13th SLI, including by William Dennie, Henry Havelock and Florentine (later Lady) Sale. No accounts by NCOs or enlisted men leap to mind right now but I don't have access to my books right now.
