Hey, one from the Boss! Good review, Jim. Nicely-explained, even for a Jerry tread-head like me!

Thanks for the wonderful review Jim. I especially like the box art as it depicts a typical Sikh soldier.

In response to your query, yes, almost all Sikh soldiers carry a ceremonial dagger called the "Kirpan" while going into battle; although this is not compulsory. The Kirpan is a symbol of faith carried by the Sikhs, however, only orthodox baptized Sikhs carry this nowadays. I did find some fine images of my ancestors while navigating the web, which I would like to share with everyone.

Cheers,
Amardeep
