Hi James

According to the Battalion history, from January 1859, their main camp was at Ballapore, on the banks of the Raptee river. From there, they made punitive expeditions into Nepal. Bankee is mentioned, as is Baraitch and Bhinga Ghat.

Unfortunately I can't find a close match for what it says in the musters which looks like 'Bilkurry'.
Tony.
