17,000 Massacred in the Worst British Military Disaster Ever

Better death than surrender was the motto of the foolish

Painting : The Last Stand of the 44th Regiment at Gundamuck, 1842 by William Barnes Wollen (1898)

When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
An’ go to your Gawd like a soldier
- Rudyard Kipling
