The Last British Evacuation of Kabul

Sir Francis Humphrys was Britain’s first Minister in Kabul since the assassination that sparked the Second Anglo-Afghan War. Humphrys remained in Kabul until February 1929 and his eight photographic albums show the construction of Curzon’s Legation (now in Pakistan), the political history of Amanullah’s reign, and of his overthrow and abdication in 1929.

The lecture begins at 1.15pm. If you would like lunch beforehand, please inform the RSAA office in advance.
