The Great Game Expedition Logo

I’m proud to present my expedition logo. This was prepared for me by Kelly Churches at Hallowed Ground The logo represents a famous illustration titled ‘Save me from my friends’, which depicts the poor Afghan stuck between the Tsarist Bear and British Lion. Both whom were portraying themselves to be the Afghans best friend. It was all part of ‘The Great Game’ for control of Central Asia in the 1800’s....
