LIST: HEIC Regiments that Mutinied or were Disarmed

For all discussions relating to the Indian Mutiny of 1857-59.

HEIC Regiments during the Mutiny

Postby Mark » 17 Jan 2008 19:41

Does anyone have or know where I can obtain details of the HEIC regiments and the part they played in the Indian Mutiny?

That is details of which one's were disarmed or mutinied as well as those which remained loyal and fought the rebels.

Victorian Colonial Warfare - India by Donald Featherstone lists all the Indian regiments that received mutiny battle honours. It also lists the regiments that mutinied and were disarmed. Osprey's Indian Infantry Regiments by Michael Barthorp list the battle honours for the infantry regts.

not especially concentrated on the Mutiny but I found Charles Allen's book "Soldier Sahibs" fascinating. Great read on the exploits of Herebert Edwardes, Lumsden and the Nicolsons in the NW Frontier and the Mutiny. Deals with period from 1839-58.

Re-numbering after the mutiny

Postby kaiser » 12 Jun 2008 21:49

Can anybody tell me what happened to the Bengal army after the Mutiny, was every unit disdanded and re-constituted along new lines or did they build a new army around the units that stayed loyal?

Andrew
Mon General, if by you action the British Army is annihilated, England will never pardon France, and France will not be able to pardon you! Always looking for medals to the Irish Regiments: 18th, 27th, 83rd, 86th, 87th, 88th, 89th,

Mark,

Have you seen A Postscript to the Records of the Indian Mutiny by G.H.D. Gimlette? The sub-title of the book is "An Attempt to Trace the Subsequent Careers and Fate of the Rebel Bengal Regiments, 1857-1858" and I think it may provide you with at least part of what you are looking for. There is a seperate discussion of each Bengal regiment that mutinied, was disbanded or simply disarmed, including the cavalry and irregular units. For each of those regiments, the information includes where the regiment was stationed, the officers present and the details of the actual disarming, disbandment or mutiny. If the regiment actually mutinied, there is also information as to what the rebels did following the mutiny and the ulitmate fate of the mutineers.

This is the only book I have found that covers this specific subject matter and I find it very useful. Unfortunately, it does not deal with the relatively few Bengal native regiments that remained loyal so it does not provide all of the information you are looking for, but I highly recommend it nevertheless.

All the best.

Tim B.

May I recomend Stanley, Peter, White Mutiny, Br Mil Culture In India 1825 -75, Lon 1998.
I read a library copy and then missed picking up a cheap copy. It was a Phd thesis, but readable and has many further references to pursue.

Cheers
