'The Approach to the Fortress of Kwettah', 1839 (c).

Tinted lithograph from 'Sketches in Afghanistan', 1838-1842, by Louis and Charles Haghe after James Atkinson, published by Henry Graves and Company and J W Allen and Company, 1 July 1842.

After fighting their way through the Bolan Pass on their expedition into Afghanistan, Sir John Keane's Army of the Indus reached the plains near the town of Quetta in Baluchistan. Mismanagement of supplies meant that the troops and camp followers were nearly in a state of mutiny over food shortages. The daily ration of the soldiers was cut by half.
