One of the last photographs taken of both Asaff and Rasheed, before he died in 1996. He wears his army medals with pride, which have now been past down to his son Parwez and will then be handed to Parwez's son, Irfan. These medals are significant for the family, as they remain as a reminder of what happened in 1947.
