Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Bihar Light Horse was raised in 1862 and formed part of the Cavalry Reserve in the British Indian Army. The regimental headquarters was at Muzaffarpur in Bihar. The regiment was disbanded following India's independence in 1947. A light horse regiment was roughly equivalent to a battalion in strength and its troops typically fought as mounted infantry rather than traditional cavalry. When the 1857 Mutiny broke out in India, Fred Collingridge of the Doudpur factory proposed the formation of a defence force for the British residents of Muzaffarpur. 53 Englishmen under the command of Minden James Wilson chose the civil surgeon, Dr. A. Simpson's bungalow for a defence post, calling it "Fort Pill Box" in his honour.show more
