Indian Army Lists online-pdfs

Postby Maureene » 06 Sep 2015 23:24

I discovered yesterday that a large number of quarterly Indian Army Lists are available as (large) pdfs on the Digital Library of India website
http://www.new1.dli.ernet.in

It is my intention to add links to the FIBIS Fibiwiki in a tabular form , and I will advise when this is done. The earliest edition I noted was July 1890, and there are editions up to the First World War period and beyond

I have added links to the FIBIS Fibiwiki page Indian Army List online, with the links in chronological order, from 1890 through to the 1940s
http://wiki.fibis.org/index.php/Indian_Army_List_online

If anyone has problems downloading, try during Indian office hours (IST 10 am to 6 pm) (IST = GMT+5:30), or GMT 4.30 am to 12.30

I have not downloaded any of these myself. I would be interested to know if there are any problems, as the files seem very large, and whether they have been catalogued correctly.
