Ahmed Khel Day

Original Title: The Experimental Brigade, Bengal Horse Artillery
Present Title: F (Sphinx) Parachute Battery, Royal Horse Artillery
Status: Active
Date: 4 December 1800
Website: http://www.army.mod.uk/artillery/regiments/24671.aspx
The history of the battery dates back to 1800 when a troop of the Bengal Horse Artillery was first formed to accompany the expedition to Egypt that year. Between 1801 and 1817 the Troop saw active service in Egypt, the Mahratta War, the Ghurkha War and finally the Siege of Hathras. After fighting in the first Burma War from 1824-26, the Troop found itself involved in the famous retreat from Kabul (1842) during the Afghan Campaign and it was during this retreat that all the guns were lost. The present day Battery is now proud possessor of one of these guns which was recaptured during the Second Afghan War (1878/1880). In the last year of the campaign, preparatory to the final assault on Ghuzni, a vital communications link with Kabul, the troops fought a magnificent action in the village of Ahmed Khel, where, forming a protective shield, the guns routed the initial onslaught of the enemy. Thus the main force was given time to deploy and so the day was saved. Two of the original guns were found in the fort of Ghuzni. This particular action of Ahmed Khel is now celebrated yearly by the present Battery on19th April when current operations allow
