The British commander kicked off with an aggressive attitude, launching the Borsetshires directly at the town from their positions around the Merchant's House. This aggression, combined with some favourable dice rolling allowed the troops to take the southern environs of Pashminia.
Following further heavy fighting, the Borsetshires advanced as far as the town Mosque and were able to target the Dagastani headquarters in the railway station. The advance through the town was accompanied by a parallel attack towards the sandbagged defences east of the town, by the fourth comany of the borsetshires and the machine gun company. The machine guns suppressed and then eliminated the Dagastani artillery, allowing the infantry to clear the defences. The machine guns then moved up allowing them a clear line of fire on the railway station.
The position after the initial attacks is shown below. While all of this was going on, far to the East a flanking force of Ghurkas and cavalry advanced on the hill.
This was defended by Dagastani militia and tribesmen, who put up a solid defence, but were eventually worn down by the disciplined marksmanship of the Imperial troops and then swept from the crest of the hill by a determined charge by one of the three Ghurkha companies.
