Services against the Mahrattas in December 1843. After various troubles on the Mahratta border two columns entered the hostile state. In two battles on the same day – 29th December 1843 – the British forces inflicted crushing defeats on the Mahrattas. This was one of the shortest of the many campaigns in India, but the cost to the British was substantial, as casualties were quite high.
