Bill did you know that Afghanistan was was under British surveillance up to 1939.???? The British Army were there for most of the 1930's. Afghanistan was the Gateway to India

Jim,

 I like the image of the Nazis getting up to mischief there. I wonder if it served as inspiration for the Indiana Jones film that took place in central Asia.
