ACTION AT BADAMA POST: The Third Afghan War, 1919

ACTION AT BADAMA POST: The Third Afghan War, 1919
by Macro, Paul

1-221680

The 3rd Afghan War in 1919 was the only time that the Afghans invaded British India during Britain's long history of conflict in Afghanistan and along the North-West Frontier. It was a campaign that cost the lives of well over 1,000 British and Indian troops. Includes more than 30 images and 5 maps.

This little-known action features a crashed aircraft from RAF's 20 Sqn and the subsequent rescue by the 22 Battery Motor Machine Gun Service. It was an all-arms action -- the lives of two airmen were saved at the cost of an Indian Militiaman and an unknown number of Afghan tribesmen.

This book looks at the background to the conflict, the Kurram Militia, the history of the squadron and the lives of the key players. Whilst this was not the only action the 22 Battery of the Motor Machine Gun Service fought during the 3rd Afghan War, this one was recorded in the account of A/Sjt Ernest 'Bill' Macro, who was in charge of the section of 22 Battery dispatched to Badama Post in late July 1919.
