He is focusing on the Late/Post WWI time period. The veterans of the Great War are few and far between and the British Army in India is not the same as the Men who fought across France and Belgium. The Afghan's are a colorful collection of troops with a wide assortment of weapons. He is sorely tempting me to look at a new period.

Some fun summer Reading or Learing about the Afghan Frontier in 1917
One of the blogs I am following is a developing campaign set in Afghanistan from before WWI to just after it. The blog, Waziristan on a Fancy has just put up their first scenario for their campaign. Its a wonderful diversion with period descriptions of colonial actions that quite frankly I had never heard of before nor was likely to until I stumbled upon his blog.
