Generations

Many of us have grown up off springs and some of them have chosen to follow the imprints of their fathers and grand fathers - or even some of us are second or third generations men at arms. This section has been added on the request of those whose sons have joined the profession of arms.

We have a long list of course mates who are second generation sons of the soil. Some that I remember are:
  • Col Saeed Raja - father Colonel Col M.M.Siddique Raja, MC and Bar
  • Abdul Qadir Khan Shahid - father Lieutenant Colonel Basit commanded an air defence regiment
  • Safdar Jahanzeb - father Brigadier Bangash ( was commanding the Piffers Center while we were in the academy)
  • Naveed Akbar Khalid had a parental claim on 5 Light Air Defence Regiment 
  • Mumtaz Hussain (late) had a parental claim of 19 Light Air Defence Regiment and later commanded it.
And herein under are few more:

 
Brig Muhammad Siddique Khan, SJ, SK - son Lt Col Mujeeb (could not find his photo as Lieutenant Colonel - so chose his school days photo)
 
Tariq Khan and Father Lieutenant Colonel Nawabzada Azmat Khan. Played Polo for Pakistan. Commanded 4 Cavalry - which later Tariq commanded. Died 2011.
