The 15th Sikhs meeting the rush of Afridis
The Graphic - "After his succesful expedition in the Auran Valley General Kempster retired into camp at Maidan on Nov 15. The tropps descended the hill which divides the Auran from the Tirah Valleys in alternate compaines, whiile two companies of the 15th Sikhs held the ridge against the tribesmen, who were then collecting in threatening numbers. Suddenly the two covering compaines were attacked by the Afridi Ghaszis in great force and with such determination that the engagement speedily resolved itself into a fierce fight at close quarters. The Sikhs fought splendidly. By firing volleys in compaines they not only succeeded in holding their position, but drove the enemy back with heavy loss." 18/12/1987
