Hi Mark,

Feel very guilty that I have not been 'here' for a good few months........... :oops:

However, back to the thread, this is going to be a great list although the area that would be of interest to me (Central India) is still under construction!

A question for you in the meantime, will the list cover any actions undertaken by the HEIC forces as well as British forces?

Cheers.

Hi Mark

Good to see you here on the VWF. I am hoping to include all battles and actions of the Indian Mutiny including those fought by the HEIC.

Hopefully I will get around to finishing the Central India campaign over the next week or so, like everyhting its finding the time but I've already made a start on it.

I am currently helping FIBIS http://www.fibis.org/ compile their database of Battles & Actions in British India 1600-1900. Many of our members have ancestors who took part in those battles and are interested in the regiments involved. In the FIBIWIKI section there is a link from the 'Category:Wars:Indian Mutiny' to a listing in Google Books of where all the regiments were in 1857. Many of the battles which you list already have pages in the FIBIWIKI with detailed descriptions.
You may be interested to have a look. If anyone has information on the regiments (both HM and EIC) involved in a particular action I would be grateful to add it to battle page. I hope we can cooperate.

Hi Harold

I must admit I haven't spent much time on this since my original post above due to working on other projects (both forum and non-forum related).

However, I will try to pick up where I left off soon. Unless anyone else fancies giving it a go??? :wink:
