A view of Afghanistan showing Afghan soldiers who fought with the British for Shah Shuja-ull-Mulk (1785-1842) during the First Afghan war. From 'Sketches in Afghanistan' by James Atkinson (1780-1852), 'Superintending Surgeon of the Army of the Indus, Bengal Division' during the ill-fated British expedition into Afghanistan (1838-42). A Persian scholar and linguist, Atkinson has been described as 'a Renaissance man among Anglo-Indians'. Because of his languages he met many of the Afghan protagonists, including both Shah Shoojah-ool-Moolk and Dost Mohammad Khan. Fortunately he left the British garrison in 1840 to take another post, thus avoiding the disastrous retreat from Kabul in 1842. In his book 'The Expedition into Afghanistan', also published 1842, he compared the British presence in Afghanistan to Sisyphus rolling his stone up the hill.

Print made to commemorate the famous capture of two French standards (those of the 45eme and 105eme de la ligne) during the Seventh Coalition's victory in the Battle of Waterloo.

Stiles was credited with the capture of the 105eme eagle, as recorded here. Stiles was the only officer rewarded for the capture by being made a sergeant and later given and ensigncy, although competing accounts credit another officer, Captain Alexander Clark, with the capture. The eagle standard of the 105eme is now in the collection of the National Army Museum, London. By John Augustus Atkinson (1775 - 1830), painter, draughtsman and printmaker. He spent 1784-1801 in Russia and subsequently made many prints during the Napoleonic Wars.

Sappers were the combat engineers who were typically incharge of any general construction and repair as well a bridge-building and field defenses. The images are taken from "The Campaign in India 1857-1858", from drawings made during the eventful period of the Great Mutiny. The Indian Rebellion of 1857 began in the town of Meerut when a group of sepoys, native soldiers employed by the British East India Company's army, mutinied because of perceived race-based injustices and inequities. The uprising was soon converted into insurrection or civilian rebellion against the Company.
