[19857] INDIA - GB ... 1st AFGHAN WAR MAJOR-GENERAL W.K. ELPHINSTONE… 1840 (Apr 18) Entire cross written letter together with English transcript & copy of National Dictionary of Biography to daughter in London from Major General W.K. Elphinstone (1782-1842) Commanding Benares Division of Bengal Army & written from Meerut NWP with red framed Meerut /Paid via Marseilles & red oval India, initially incorrectly charged 1/- & altered to 2/8 with red London Foreign Branch Crown deleting 1/- & with London (10 Jun) arrival date stamp. ............................................................................................... 1st Afghan war April 1839 - Sep 1842. General Elphinstone was given Command of the Benares Division in 1839 & yet despite being old with little or no knowledge of the North West Province in very poor health, crippled with gout & unable to cope with the terrain he was later in March 1841 given Command of the Cabul garrison. November 1841 saw the Afghans surround Cabul & Jan 1842 Elphinstone is blamed for the loss of an estimated 4,000 soldiers & 12,000 camp followers at the Khyber Pass massacre. Perhaps the Indian government should take blame for giving the important command to a man in the full knowledge of his age, health & long absence from action
