Camp near the Gyantse Jong

The formidable fortress of the Gyantse Jong with the British and Indian camp in the foreground. ĘThe Fusiliers thought that, in the hands of European troops it would be impregnable. ĘBut the Tibetans were poorly armed and led by officers who were in awe of the British. ĘThe artillery opened up a breach in the walls which was stormed on 6th July 1904.Ę
