In the last Newsletter I reported that new member Santiago José de Castillo and colleagues were looking for a speaker on the First Afghan War:
"I am contacting you because, as I mentioned to you during the New Researchers' Conference, I belong to a history students' association at the University of Valladolid named CLIO. This association, in cooperation with the Cavalry Academy of Valladolid, is organizing a Historic-Strategic Symposium about Afghanistan. It won't be about the most recent episodes that we lived in last year but tackling the origins and strategical challenges that the country has presented in the second half of the last century. We are still preparing the layout of the activity, but we have already started contacting the potential speakers to see if they are interested in participating in the initiative.
In this Symposium, we had thought about adding some introductory conferences about the history of the country, being one of them the presentation of the Anglo-Afghan War of 1842 and its consequences. I was wondering if the BCMH could be interested in taking part in this project by providing a speaker that could talk about this topic.
If you can help please reply direct to Santiago at email@example.com
Michael Scott replied with a note of his book about Lady Florentia Sale and her experiences during the Retreat from Kabul.
I provide here a note of a review of Michael's book which was published in 2019 https://www.britishempire.co.uk/library/ladyofkabul.htm and the Amazon link:
