Our websites have much informnation, medals and ephemera on the subjects of the Defence of Chitral and the Relief of Chitral. The whole subject relating to this Victorian period is very interesting covering Chitral Fort, Malakand, Samana, The Punjab Frontier Force and Tirah. Malakand has a Winston Churchill connection and we have various portraits of Officer of the Victorian Army as well.
