Fort Gulistan. Another fort, another action in the NWFP Rising of 1897-98. Pictured here are the survivors of a Gulistan sortie party, with Afridi tribesmen they captured during their attack. Gort Gulistan stood in the Samana range of hills, south of the Khyber Pass. The forts here were held by the 36th Sikhs and this was to be that Regiment’s first action since it’s creation in 1887.
