Storyline

Ash returns to his Regiment but his heart is no longer in the work. The Commandant is prepared to accept his resignation but orders Ash to undertake one last task. He goes to Kabul undercover to gather intelligence in support of the British delegation that is establishing itself there. Wally is in Kabul with the Regiment but he and Ash have had a falling out. The head of the legation ignores Ash's warning that unpaid Afghan troops will riot if not paid and soon enough, they attack the small British force. The British Residence is overrun and Ash is the only survivor. Now free from any obligations to his former Regiment, he must return to Bhitor when he hears that the Rana is seriously ill and that his wives will need to commit suttee and join him on his funeral pyre should he die. His only concern now is to save Anjuli. Written by garykmcd
