When I see these old pictures and hear of the Khyber Pass it reminds me of one of my favorite movies "The Man Who Would Be King."
One of the best scenes...

And is it me but does the elephant on the far right looks like it is wearing a helmet? ;)

I know. I was actually wondering how they got them off.
I get the elephant would kneel down but it would still be a good drop from there.
Lots of man power I figured.
