No. I have too many Bhisties in the cabinet already. However I have been since the middle of last month trying to get a 13th Bengal Lancer out of Pakistan. Yes I have now given up on that one.

Hopefully we can soon see Karimdad Khan joining the horse lines in the Cape. With some luck he might have been involved in the operations in the Kurram Valley with the rest of the regiment. What is known is that he was awarded the India Long Service & Good Conduct Medal in the 1910 India Army Orders.
