VICTORIA CROSS
RECIPIENTS 1919-1921
THE FORGOTTON VCs
 
 
The prelude to the 1919–1920 campaign was an incursion by the Mahsud Tribe in the summer of 1917 while British forces were otherwise engaged fighting in the Great War. The British Forces eventually restored calm; however, in 1919 the Waziris took advantage of unrest in Afghanistan following the Third Anglo-Afghan War to launch more raids against British garrisons.
