The fort which was shelled and captured by the British is seen in the center. On the right is the Kabul River, on the banks of which grows the only vegetation in this desolate area. From the hills surrounding the camp however, may be seen the fertile valleys of Afghanistan.

During the month of summer, white troops suffer intensely from the heat, the temperature ranging from 110 to 127 degrees.

In addition there are daily sandstorms and enemy snipers keep up incessant firing from concealed positions.
