    Pre-1900 Indian military photographs..

    Pre-1900 Indian military photographs..

    We saw numerous pics of 1900-1947, though their are very few pics are there of those British-Bharatiya Jawans back in 1800-1900s who died for the Queen and the Crown and later lost in the pages of History , i believe their are many pics which are yet to be posted over net specially for Indian Members, Here some i got from

    Some early pics of 2nd Afghan War 1878 to 1881 and later ones..
    :

    British officers of the Guides. Lieutenant Walter Hamilton VC with his Indian troopers who defended the residency at Kabul stands on the right. On the 3rd September 1879, without warning, Afghan soldiers attacked the Residency and were joined by the civilian population. 4 Britons and 69 Indian troops faced countless thousands of Afghan soldiers and civilians. The Indian troops were 21 Guides Cavalry and 48 Guides Infantry. (The Guides were an elite Regiment of the Indian Army)Soon Cavagnari, Jenkyns and Kelly were dead. Hamilton and his Guides fought desperately, even charging out of the Residency to bayonet the crews of artillery brought against them. During one of these attacks Lieutenant Hamilton was killed. The Residency was set on fire and the buidlings started to collapse. As the sun went down that evening, the few remaining Guides were commanded by Jemadar Jewand Singh (Guides Cavalry). All day the Afghans called upon the Guides to surrender, promising them their lives. The Guides rejected this offer and after 12 hours of fighting the few remaining men fixed bayonets and charged out to their deaths. Over 600 Afghan dead bore witness to the heroic resistance of this small force.

    The Guides proved that day that they were 'true to their salt.'
    NCO's and Sepoys of the Guides Infantry, showing the different members of the 'martial races' that filled its ranks. A photograph taken after the Afghan war, the medal for which is worn by most of the men. The Sikh on the right also wears the Indian order of merit, the sepoys equivalent of the Victoria Cross.

    Fort Onslow on the Bemaru Heights above the Sherpur Cantonment, Kabul, with Indian and British troops lining the ramparts.

    Indian troops defending the Sherpur cantonment. A barricade of wagons has been made with a thin line of abatis in front. Infantry supports are positioned in the rear. At dawn on the 23rd December 1879 50-60,000 Afghan tribesmen attacked the cantonment which had a perimeter of four and a half miles long. Roberts had Indo-British 7000 troops to hold the perimeter and twenty guns. However disciplined volley fire by the Martini-Henry armed Indian and British soon saw the Afghans off. Roberts lost 5 killed and 28 wounded, the Afghan losses are unknown but estimated at at least 3000.

    Good, I can feel your anger. I am defenseless. Take your weapon. Strike me down with all of your hatred and your journey towards the dark side will be complete!
