British Indian Army Cavalry The British Indian Army maintained about forty regiments of cavalry, officered by British and manned by Indian sowars (cavalrymen). The legendary exploits of this branch lives on in literature and early films. Among the more famous regiments in the lineages of modern Indian and Pakistani Armies are: Governor General's Bodyguard (now President's Bodyguard) Skinner's Horse (now India's 1st Horse (Skinner's) Gardner's Horse (now India's 2nd Lancers (Gardner's) Hodson's Horse (now India's 4th Horse (Hodson's) of the Bengal Lancers fame 6th Bengal Cavalry (later amalgamated with 7th Hariana Lancers to form 18th King Edward's Own Cavalry) now 18th Cavalry of the *Indian Army Probyn's Horse (now Pakistani) Royal Deccan Horse (now India's The Deccan Horse) Poona Horse (now India's The Poona Horse) Queen's Own Guides Cavalry (now partitioned between Pakistan and India). Several of these formations are still active, though they now are armoured formations, for example Guides Cavalry in Pakistan.

The Army in Burma Reserve of Officers (A.B.R.O.) The commencement of the ABRO is not on record; a suggested date is the separation of India and Burma in 1937. See External links below.

British in the Indian Army British in this context refers to those of British/European background. Officers were British, although there were additionally lower ranked native Indian Officers who were Viceroy Commissioned Officers. There were British support staff, mainly Warrant Officers and Sergeants. Most of them were not attached to a regiment, however at times a British soldier could be in a role such as Quartermaster Sergeant in a Native Infantry Regiment. See Unattached List for further details. Generally, all members of the volunteer or auxiliary regiments were British, including Anglo-Indians (formerly known as Eurasians). See Auxiliary Regiments.

Indian Army Followers Indian Army followers were regarded as non combatants, and received lesser benefits than those in the Indian Army. There were two main categories of followers: Higher ranks of followers were listed in Rule 8 under the Indian Army Act (Act VIII of 1911) as the mule, bullock and camel drivers (singular drabi, or draby, a corruption of the English word driver) of the Supply and Transport Corps, the Transport veterinary dafadars, lascars in Arsenals and Depots of the Ordnance Department, and men of the Army Bearer Corps. They usually worked in their own distinct units. The second category, the menial followers, were the attached followers, including regimental followers, the latter being those attached to infantry or cavalry regiments. These were either public or private followers. The public followers were those deemed essential to the mobilization of a unit as a fighting formation and therefore paid from the central exchequer, such as a langri (cook for Indian troops), bhisti (sweeper) and mocha (saddler). Private followers were paid from mess funds, deductions in wages etc- barbers, dhobis (washer men), mess bearers (waiters), tailors and blacksmiths. Officers paid for their own servants, a personal bearer (valet) and a syce (groom) 20 March 1917: the conversion of mule drivers from follower to combatant service. 23 April 1918: a set of concessions were announced for the Army Bearer Corps.[1] Also see Historical books online, below.

There are India Office records in the British Library, reference IOR L/MIL/14 (http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/browse/r/h/30346e87-7f04-47dc-9c3f-6176d4596cba). The records include Indian Army Records of Service IOR/L/MIL/14/239-72481 (http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/8104f4f4-178f-4c70-bdc4-ac5e570e256d) c 1901-1947. It appears unlikely that these records contain men in the Volunteer or Auxiliary Regiments. Previously the catalogue entry advised that the closure period for these files has been set at 75 years from the date of entry of the serviceman/woman into the service. The files are opened on an annual basis. On 1 January 2010, files relating to persons joining the service in 1934 were opened. However, this wording does not now appear. A complete alphabetical index to the opened files is now available on open access in the Asian & African Studies Reading Room at the British Library or it can be searched by name on British Library archive search (http://searcharchives.bl.uk/primo_library/libweb/action/search.do?vid=IAMS_VU2). Note *The majority of files date from the 1930s. * "It was the policy for a very long time that on retirement of a regular IA officer to give them their service record when they did retire, and in the case of officers died in service the papers were sent on to the family as a rememberence. That is why if you are researching a regular IA officer of the period say 1900 - 1930 the papers will not be there. After 1930 you get a selection of papers but not the full lot - these seem to be a mixed bag.[2] This policy is illustrated by a researcher who found a relative’s British Army, and Indian Army service records through to 1947, in an old family suitcase.[3] *It is not known whether the search facility only locates names where there is an open file. Additionally, there are publications from the Military Department Library in respect of the Indian Army, catalogue entry IOR/L/MIL/17/5 (http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/browse/r/h/6f45402ba1fb-457d-963e-237c34a24729) 1854-1947 including Indian Army List IOR/L/MIL/17/5/1-219 (http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/browse/r/h/9300d679-fca7-4354-adff-12efdb32c698) 1889-1947 These are readily available on the open shelves. War Services are a particularly valuable feature of the List and the volumes in which they appear or with which they were issued separately are marked within the link with an asterisk. After 1892 the war services of Indian Officers are included in January issues only. A few editions have been reprinted. See below.

The book Index of Indian Army Regimental Titles by Anthony Farrington, published 1982 is on the open shelves at the British Library India’s Army by Major D. Jackson 1940 contains a "potted history" of every Regiment & Corps (including the auxiliary & princely state forces). With 70 chapters, over 100 B & W photos & illustrations, 14 full Colour plates. Available online, refer below. A good source of military information is the annual publication of Indian Army Orders IOR/L/MIL/17/5/245-299 1903-1947, issued by the Adjutant General's Department and Army Headquarters India. Volumes 245-85 (to 1942, and partially 1943) contain annual indexes. This publication includes at least some information from the official Gazettes (see the following item). Some editions of Indian Army Orders are available online, see Military periodicals online -Indian Army Orders, or see Historical books online below. The India Office Records at the British Library include Government Gazettes IOR/V/11 (http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/browse/r/h/be7a2de3-ffce-4b2c-b9c9-9d0f425fae92) 1831-1947 which contain much military information. The Government Gazettes were the official newspapers of the Government of India and its provincial governments. The series held are: Gazettes of India 1865-1947, Calcutta 1832-1947, Assam 18741947, Bihar and Orissa 1912-1947, United Provinces, 1850-1947, Fort St George 1832-1947, Bombay 1831-1947, Punjab 1872-1947, North-West Frontier Province 1932-1947, Central Provinces 1875-1947, Coorg 1885-1947, Sind 1869-1947, Burma 1875-1947.

National Archives of India Indian armed forces personnel records are held at the National Archives of India [4] with the contact email address given as: [email protected] "I enquired at the National Archives in Delhi and received 150 pages of my grandfather's service record. An enquiry doesn't cost any money until they copy documents for you. The process is slow but well worth the wait". D. Fielder 14 April 2011.[5] Subsequently he advised "My grandfather was in the IMS… I received it [the record] within 3-4 months".[6] Some earlier advice is contained in “How to Retrieve Indian War Records” a WW2Talk Forum post dated 2 July 2009.[7] The writer of this section sent an email request in October 2013, using the email address previously quoted. A reply was received seven weeks later, but unfortunately no record is available, (nor is there a record at the British Library). A researcher visiting India was advised to contact the Adjutant General's Office in Delhi. Eventually she found the actual address to be Adjutant General's Office, Indian Headquarters of the Ministry of Defense (Army), Room No. 280, South Block, New Delhi 110011. Email address [email protected] The files in Delhi are filed by the service record numbers, so it is necessary to have this information.[8] It seems probable that the files accessible through the National Archives of India and the Adjutant General's Office, both located in Delhi, are the same files, but this is not yet known. Note: Refer comment under British Library records above that generally there will not be files for officers who retired, as officer papers were presented to them on retirement. Regarding other records about the Indian Army at the National Archives of India, a researcher commented: "There is a lot on the Indian Army at the NA of India. Most of it is of course part of the Army/Military Department collection but one can find some interesting files every now and then in the Home Department or the Foreign and Political Department. Unfortunately they do not allow researchers to make copies of the indexes and to the best of my knowledge there is no online reference. The only way to get to it is to go there yourself or engage a local researcher...Sadly they do not allow photography".[9] Other records in India Centre For Armed Forces Historical Research (CAFHR) (http://usiofindia.org/CAFHR/), The United Service Institution of India. This Centre may be able to offer advice about military records in India. Article "Treasure trove: Awesome collection in awful condition" (http://tribune.com.pk/story/204911/treasure-trove-awesome-/) by Sonia Malik 8 July 2011, The Tribune, Pakistan, gives details of records held at the Lahore Museum in respect of over 100,000 Indian soldiers who served in the British Army during the First World War. State Archives in India, such as West Bengal State Archive, may have records. See Indian Libraries and Archives. Note however, access may be restricted to persons connected with a university or recognised institution.

British Army records after January 1921/April 1922 If you are looking records for British personnel who served in the Indian Army , either officers whose service ended after April 1922 or soldiers whose service ended after January 1921, and there is no record in the series "Indian Army Records of Service IOR/L/MIL/14/239/1-72481", or at the National Archives of India, (refer above for both these sources), you could try contacting the Army Personnel Centre Historical Disclosures Section, whose details are set out in the article British Army-Army personnel serving after January 1921. This is not a confirmed source, but some other British Army records include British officers from the Indian Army. Note: Refer comment under British Library records above that generally there will not be files for officers who retired, as officer papers were presented to them on retirement.

FamilySearch [LDS] Microfilms Note: Microfilm ordering services ceased 7 September 2017, however selected microfilms have been digitised and are currently available for viewing on a FamilySearch computer at a FamilySearch Centre. Locate these records through the FamilySearch catalogue. It is expected that in time all microfilms will be similarly available in this format. Please take this into account when reading the information below. Indian Army Lists are available as Familysearch, previously known as LDS, microfilms, possibly for the period only to 1888 and appear in the FamilySearch catalogue (http://www.familysearch.org/sea rch/catalog/778871) as An East-India register and directory. It is possible that the publications from 1889 only contain the Civil Service List, and not the Army List, but this is not known. (The FamilySearch catalogue also has an military records entry (http://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/578082) for "The India Office list, 1886-1940 : containing an account of the services of the officers in the Indian service and other information" available on microfiche. It seems likely that that these are in fact catalogued incorrectly and are not military records, as the India Office Lists for 1924 and 1929, (see Directories online) do not appear to contain an Indian Army List) A limited number of additional FamilySearch microfilms are available in respect of the Indian Army: Search the FamilySearch Library catalogue (http://familysearch.org/catalog/search) using keywords “Indian Army” and “India Office”. For viewing details, see FamilySearch Centres.

The collection at the NAM includes the card index by Hodson and Percy Smith which includes details of officers who joined the Indian Army from Sandhurst, warrant officers and some Emergency Commissioned Officers of the Second World War. The NAM collection also includes 3,400 questionnaires completed in the 1960’s, 70s and 80s by former India Army Officers about their careers and families. The NAM also holds some Indian Army regimental histories.

Prince Consort's Library The Prince Consort's Library, Aldershot, Hampshire contains a large number of pre Independence Indian Army regimental histories.

Uniform items Also refer Externals links, Uniforms below.

The turban The turban provided protection from sun, wind, cold and minor blows to the head.[10] When it was windy, with sand being blown around, an end of the turban could be used to cover face, nose, ears and beard.[11] Dress Regulations 1913 refer to the lungi and the pagri. British Officers serving with Indian units are permitted to wear a lungi in place of a helmet with khaki dress…All officers of a unit must be dressed alike. (Page 7) The Pashtu language word is lungi, (lungee,[12]) while the Hindi/Punjabi word is pagri, (pugri, puggaree, pagree, pagg, pagh, pagari). The lungi was often wrapped around a kullah, (kulla, khulla), a dome shaped scull cup, which however is not worn by Sikhs. Sikhs in the Army, as part of their uniform, were issued a 5 metre turban, and a half size, smaller, under turban called a "fifty" which was usually in a contrasting colour. [13] The smaller cloth was also known as a pag, (pakta), (which could also be a bandana type cloth) and shows as a small triangle of contrasting colour in the centre of the forehead under the lungi. In Army terminology, the term lungi was usually used for the cloth the turban was constructed from, and a pagri usually referred to the cloth which was wound around a sun helmet, the latter worn both by British in the Indian Army, and in the British Army. However, in some contexts, a lungi and kullah together formed a pagri, and in other contexts the words lungi and pagri have the same meaning. The lungis were of “regimental pattern” which often differed between officers and O.R.s, and also could differ from one decade to the next. [14]. This means it may be difficult to identify the regiment from the pattern.

The kurta The kurta was a kaftan like garment which could be knee length or longer.

Indian Military Academy and other Training Schools Indian Military Academy The Indian Military Academy was established at Dehra Dun in 1932. The course was designed to be parallel to the course at Sandhurst, UK. During WW2 it provided an eight month training course for soldiers from the rank, or for civilians who had graduated from a prior eight week program at Datta Officers Training School, Lahore. The successful participants were graduated as Second Lieutenants.

Other Officer Training Schools To meet the urgent needs for officers, the Daly College at Indore was converted to an Officer Training School in 1918. [15] There was one batch of graduates. C 1943, there were Officer Training Schools at Bangalore, Belgaum , Mhow and Datta, (Dutta) Lahore. Dutta O.T.S was situated in one wing of the Foreman Christian College campus on the bank of the canal which ran through the suburbs of Lahore.[16][17]

Staff College The Army Staff College moved to Quetta in 1907. Established in 1905, it was a training college for existing officers to become eligible for Staff appointments.

Officers trained in countries other than UK or India Top officer cadets in both Australia and Canada could opt for service in the Indian Army. The Australians liked the cavalry and the Canadians liked the infantry.[18]

Language skills It appears language qualifications for officers were required before being sent on active service. For an example, see 128th Pioneers.
