Imperial Infantry, Second Afghan War 1878 - 1880
Huzzah! The last unit for my British Army Field Force for The Men Who Would be Kings is complete. I've been basing my Field Force on units that fought in the Second Afghan War and next up is the 67th (South Hampshire) Regiment of Foot.

In 1858 the regiment returned to India, moving on to China in 1860, where it fought in the Second Opium War (1857-60). Four members of the regiment won the Victoria Cross during the capture of the Taku (or Peiho) Forts (1860). The 67th also participated in the subsequent capture of Peking (1860).
Officer from Artizan Designs and other ranks from Perry Miniatures.
