Indian Regimental Histories Online

Postby Mark » 22 May 2014 12:42

Does anyone know of any regimental histories for Indian units that are available online? In particular I am looking for those who played a part in any of the expeditions on the North West Frontier.

In the meantime I will continue to trawl through archive.org and share anything I find.

The Digital Library of India has a a limited number.

The following have Infantry in the title:
Famous Indian Regiment Kali Panchwin Maratta Light infantry 1768 -1923 by Reginald Hennell 1927
Historical Records Of The Xiii Madras Infantry. by R Jackson 1898.
History Of The First Sikh Infantry 1864-1886 Vol-I., 1887.
Madras Infantry,1748-1943., by E G Phythian-Adams, 1943.
The story of the 97th Deccan Infantry. By WC Kirkwood 1929

This website is rather slow and uses TIFF images. There are some details in the FIBIS Fibiwiki page Online books.

I don't recall any Indian Army Histories on Archive.org, apart from one on Mountain Artillery. Occasionally some one reposts a book from the Digital Library of India to Archive.org but I don't think I've seen this for regimental histories.

Any online histories I have come across I have added to the Fibiwiki page for the relevant regiment.

Naval and Military Press have a number of reprints of Indian Army Regimental Histories

Thans again, Maureene! As always you are a star!

I have found the Mountain Artillery book on archive.org and the History Of The First Sikh Infantry 1864-1886 Vol-I. Other than that not much else so far.
