Pathan tribesmen, 1879 (c).

Photograph, 2nd Afghan War, 1879 (c).

The tribes of the North West Frontier and Afghan border defended their mountainous strongholds with great skill and courage. Armed with jezails, long and heavy muskets fitted with a forked rest, they were fine marksmen and took a heavy toll on the British and Indian army units who entered their territory.
