    Dear friends,

    Am a former Indian Army officer from the Armoured Corps. Have taken premature retirement after 20 years of service, but still retain close interest in matters military. I have since co-authored a book called "Delhi Durbar 1911 - The Complete Story" published by Roli Books. I bolg on military matters at Swordarm | The Arm That Wields The Sword and also aggregate defence related news everyday at Jottings.
    Look forward to interacting and contributing positively on the forum.

    Cheers

    Lt Col Rohit Agarwal (Retd)

    Bro? Unless you are 50 years of age, I think the Colonel should be way older than you.

    @Yusuf, in the Indian Army you pick up your Lt Col's rank at 13 years of service - which is around 34 years of age. My age, btw, is 43. I took pre-mature retirement 2 years back.

    @John - 74 refers to my erstwhile regiment, not my year of birth. My age is 43.
