From Linking experiences of World War One
Jump to: navigation, search

According to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, in August 1914, the Indian Army comprised 39 horsed cavalry regiments and 138 infantry battalions, 20 of which were Gurkhas.[1] Of the 200,000 enlisted men, 45,000 were non-combatants.[1] By the end of the war, 1,105,000 Indian personnel had been sent overseas.[2] Indian women also served in Queen Alexandra's Imperial Military Nursing Service.[2]

Indian Infantry Battalions

Most Indian infantry battalions now have basic pages on this site, listed below and in Category:Indian infantry battalions. All of these pages need improving. Pages exist for every Indian Army infantry battalion listed in the January 1919 Indian Army List. There could be some Imperial Service units still missing. Please help to add them if you know of any. We haven't yet added any pages for units of the Indian Volunteer Corps or Indian Defence Force.

Some Indian war diaries are held by the Australian War Memorial and need adding to pages manually. War diaries held by the UK National Archives should already be on the relevant unit pages but some could be missing. Some links to TNA war diaries have broken since the pages were created because the document references have been changed as part of digitisation. These will need manually checking and correcting.

The following table lists infantry battalions that have pages. It can be sorted by regiment name or number.
