Description


The discovery of some hitherto unpublished photographs of Younghusband`s mission to Tibet where the inspiration for General Soods writings. This expedition to Tibet was the first of its kind to be undertaken in modern times and lead to an historic treaty with the Forbidden Kingdom. Commander of the First Battalion of The Eighth Gorkha Rifles (1/8 GR), General Sood came across these historically important and beautiful photographs of various stages of the expedition taken by an officer of the Battalion. Fascinated by the album and its contents he undertook a study of The Tibet Mission. This narrative is backed up by extensive and fascinating documents from the National Archives and the War Diaries of the Battalion Rather than the interpersonal or interdepartmental rivalries that existed at that time, the writer looks at matters military with particular reference to his own Battalion - which played a key role in bringing the treaty with Tibet to its natural conclusion. The narrative is narrowed down to the point of view of military man and military etiquette. The evocative, atmospheric photographs speak for themselves.
