Captain & Mrs Barff, Zardin & their other Afghans
We are grateful to William Barff for allowing us the unique opportunity to borrow and scan the following, never before published, photographs of Capt Barff and his wife with Zardin and other Afghan Hounds in both India & the UK.
With huge thanks to Helen Stephens for putting us in touch with William and making it all happen!
Also to Steve Tillotson & Lyall Payne for all their invaluable help and encouragement.
