Photograph of General Appleyard and his staff at the Khyber Pass. General Appleyard is seated on a steep hillside to the left. A soldier wearing a turban and holding a gun is standing behind him and two soldiers wearing western military uniform are standing on the hillside beside him to the right. A fort can be seen in the valley behind and mountains extend into the distance. The photographer John Burke travelled with the Peshawar Valley Field Force during the Second Anglo-Afghan War (1878-80), one of a series of conflicts between Britain and Russia over control of Afghanistan. His images from the war capture landscapes, key strategic sites and soldiers involved in the conflict.
From the collection of King Edward VII when Prince of Wales
