Elephant Battery

Postby rclpillinger » 24 Sep 2015 21:59

This postcard from Grandfather's collection, has, like most of the cards, nothing written on it. As it says, it is of the Elephant Battery at Ihansi, but other than that I know nothing about it, and I am guessing that I have chosen the correct period on the Forum.

Can anyone tell me any more about the picture?

Hi,

I think most of what you are after is in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=6181 elsewhere on this forum.

Nice card by the the way!

Martin, I don't think the Forum spec. will allow me to post a higher resolution image, but if you go to http://www.majorpillinger.com and then choose "Picture Gallery" "Postcards" you will find it in the India section, and image number 100. Alternatively I could e-mail you a better copy.

Thanks to all for the further reading which I have found interesting. Can we any further detail of the Battery from the place name, Ihansi?
