Group Photo at School of Arty, Nowshera (OBY 59A), Nov 1972

Group Photo at School of Arty, Nowshera (OBY 59A),  Nov 1972. This historic photo shows some of our Course mates at School of Arty, Nowshera in 1972. All Course mates, who got commission in Arty, were sent right from PMA to attend a 4 months YO’s Course (31 July to 18 Nov 1972) at School of Arty, Nowshera. As the number of officers was large,  OBY 59 Course was divided in sections. This is the group photo of OBY 59A. The group photos of other sections will be added in the Course website, when received.
There is an error in this photo. 9 officers are in Standing 2nd Row but names of only 8 have been given. Some one should give the missing name and his exact location in that row.
Unfortunately, Sabz Ali Khan, H-2 (Standing 2nd Row: Extreme Right) is no more with us انا لله وانا اليه راجعون ( May Allah grant him a prominent place in Janat-ul-Firdous, Ameen).
Photo contributed by Maj Sikandar Qadri, (SS-5).

    Thanks Cheema for at least providing me whereabouts of this “NALAIQ” Sikandar Qadri, now 40 years have passed and he never even treied to trace me out. During PT periods, we were on three personalities – Sikandar Qadri-Muhammad Ali Shah-M Javaid-ul-Hussan. Our Company Comdr Maj Zafar Habib used to call only three of us during PT period and enjoy giving us punishment. Where are you old boy, give me your address and phone number.
