    Dear Cheema,
    I am so grateful for sending me the link of this post. I am also thankful to Col Nisar Sarwar Khara for sharing this group photo of Abdali-4 platoon. It took me back to PMA days of 1972. Unforgettable people, unforgettable places, I am proud to be one of those who got selected in Pakistan Army and went through PMA, the world’s best institution. I am the lucky one indeed and the blessed one by Allah Subhanotalla.

    السلام عليكم Cheema, I am grateful to you and Col Nisar Sarwar Khara for making an effort in digging out this valuable ‘treasure’. My framed copy was damaged because of a heavy rain on my luggage at Rawalpindi railway station in 1992. Please send me email addresses of Col Zafar Mustafa and Col Khara. Thanks and regards.
