Donated a group of Ancient Northwest Indian coins to the museum. It is not clear who the Mr Haughton of this donation was but John Colyps Haughton who had joined the Bengal Native Infantry and fought in the first Anglo-Afghan War (1839-42), commanding the beseiged forces at Charikar would be in the right place at the right time to collect these coins.
