Quartermaster-General's Group, February 1880.

Photograph by John Burke, 2nd Afghan War, 1880.

This photograph depicts several senior British officers from the campaign. Quartermaster-General Charles MacGregor is shown second from right. MacGregor served as Roberts' chief-of-staff during the campaign and commanded the 3rd Brigade during the famous march from Kabul to Kandahar. The figure resting his elbow on a copy of 'The Gazetteer of Central Asia', based on MacGregor's extensive travels in the region, is Quartermaster-General Sir Henry Collett, a noted botanist, as well as a soldier. Across from him sits Major-General Sir Frederick Roberts the commander of the Kurram Field Force and later the Kabul and Kandahar Field Force.
