Hello Omer

I am very pleased to see contributions to the Fibiwiki from someone with local knowledge. I have written most of the pages on the Battles and Campaigns as well as many on Locations but acknowledge that often the information is pretty sparse. In particular we need help identifying places of interest during the British period which can be added to the maps attached to the Location articles. The page at explains the project but I see you have already made a significant addition to Abbotabad. The priority is to produce attached maps for each of the locations which were headquarters towns of the administrative districts. If you could give me the address of the places of interest you have added to Abbotabad, I can produce the map. Have a look at the Calcutta page ( and its map ( to see a developed example.

Dear Sy, hallo! Im happy to be of help--have already responded to the above on your talk page--I guess that we are mostly concerned with the Old Cantonment of Abbottabad and to some extent, the old Civil Lines, and shall be soon sending relevant information about places here for the map/s.

Of course, Calcutta was a v big place indeed and Abbotabad a v small town by comparison but it was still district and later divisional HQ for Hazara. OSKT 03:33, 2 December 2012 (PST)OSKT

Hello Omer. Thanks for the wiki additions - really interesting. I am the FIBIS Research co-ordinator and I also help with the wiki. I have added a couple of categories to your image of the Abbotabad Cemetery. This helps groups images with similar subjects etc and gives them a higher profile. Hope you can follow this idea and it is Ok by you. Beverly

Hallo dear Beverly, thanks for your note! Youre v welcome indeed. Yes I appreciate the cross-referencing for various interested people/groups, of the OCC photo-- I think there are also some photos of individual graves here in the TSI (Sophia Institute Abbottabad) collection, a link to which is also given on the Abbottabad page, maybe this might also be of some use too?

Hi Omer. I am still waiting for Sarah to send me a copy of the map and I have asked her to send Sy a copy too. I'll let you know when I receive it. Many thanks for your invaluable contributions. It is greatly appreciated. --Valmay Young 08:00, 6 December 2012 (PST)

Just to confirm that I too am waiting to see the map. Meanwhile thanks for all the editing you have done in the last few days.--Sy 09:15, 6 December 2012 (PST)
Dear Valmay Young and Sy youre very welcome indeed, whenever I shall have any chance I shall do my best to help out here in the improvement of the pages Ive watchlisted as of interest. I shall await your further response, when yoiuve both had a chance to read and see the map, then we could work on that side too. Warm regards, Omer OSKT 04:42, 7 December 2012 (PST)OSKT
