This was found while searching on A9.com. I uses Khyber Pass

Plaque in the search field. "...we found the marble-canopied

monument commemorating those British soldiers from the Queens Own

Corps of Guides who died in Kabul in 1879. The plaque said that

they had "conferred undying honor not only to the regiment to which

they belong but on the whole British army." It wasn't the army that

tamed the country around Mardan, but the Benton Canal, completed in

1902 and bringing a part of the Swat River under the Malakand Pass

and out around Mardan, whose outskirts were green with orchards and

yellow with wheat stretching from tree to tree...
