'Khelat-i-Ghilzai. Candahar Gate', 1879 (c).

Watercolour sketch from the disbound album by Lt John Frederick Irwin, 59th (2nd Nottinghamshire) Regiment.

After seizing Kandahar, Lieutenant-General Donald Stewart's force then advanced along the Kabul road to Khelat-i-Ghilzai fortress which was captured on 21 January 1879. The Afghan garrison had evacuated prior to Stewart's arrival so the fort was seized without a fight.
