Umra Khan 'Napoleon of the Pathans'

Does anyone have or know the whereabouts of a photograph of Umra Khan, the so-called 'Napoleon of the Pathans'?

I am currently doing some work on the siege and subsequent relief of Chitral, but my research to-date has not uncovered a photo of this Jandol chief. It is, however, possible no such photo exists, but I thought I'd ask the question anyway.

Hi Mark

You may have already found this, but there looks to be some images (not photos) and a short profile at https://historyofpashtuns.wordpress.com ... of-jandul/

Cheers,

Liz
