Table of contents What's This?
A photograph album depicting British Military operations in Waziristan, then a region of India, in 1922 and 1923, prior to the Pink's War. Photographs mainly relate to military camps and convoys throughout the region.
After World War I, growing tension in the region of Waziristan, then part of India, now straddling the Pakistan and Afghanistan border, had hit the zenith as local Maseed, or Mahsūd, tribesmen steadfastly refused to be subdued by the British colonial control and carried out a series of successful attacks against British regimental bases. For years British were engaged in a continuing effort to pacify militant tribesmen in the province but were losing ground. The anti-colonial campaign from local tribes eventually led to Pink’s War in 1925, an air-to-ground British campaign against mountain region strongholds.
