Here's a start

The history of the Afghan National Air Corps began on 22 August 1924 as the Afghan Air Force, being founded with a few aircraft obtained from Russia as early as 1921. This small force was destroyed in 1929, and not reconstituted again until 1937. It was renamed the Royal Afghan Air Force in 1947 along with political changes in the country, a title it retained until further political upheaval in 1973.

Nothing from archive images to regret :( and absolutely nothing about Hart. But even worse with Italian types. Any magazine article or maybe Jane's yearbook from that period?
