A Sikh Mountain Battery
A Sikh Mountain Battery forming part of the Tochi Valley Expedition - sketch by F, Goldthorpe of the Punjab Frontier Force, (the frontier was Afganistan)

"My orderlies during this little episode displayed such touching devotion that it is with feelings of the most profound admiration and gratitude I call to mind their self-sacrificing courage. On this (as on many other occasions), they kept close round me, determined that no shot should reach me if they could prevent it; and on my being hit in the hand by a spent bullet, and turning to look in the direction it came from, I beheld one of the Sikhs standing with his arms stretched out trying to screen me from the enemy, which he could easily do, for he was a grand specimen of a man, a head and shoulders taller than myself." - Account of a story by Lord Roberts demonstrating the devotion of his Sikh orderlies, while under fire in Afghanistan in 1878.
