In the British Empire, a Political Officer or Political Agent was an officer of the imperial civil administration, as opposed to the military administration, usually operating outside imperial territory. The title was particularly attached to a government official acting as a political adviser to the ruler of one of the princely states in pre-independence South Asia, though it could also designate a kind of special envoy or ambassador (e.g. "Political Officer to Afghanistan").

Thanks all. I am really getting into what you can do with hard plastics with conversions and modeling.

Flashman had dealings with such people. He learned his intelligence tradecraft from Sir Alexander Burnes in Kabul.
