Compiled by an officer of the Bengal Army and originally published in 1863, this volume is virtually unobtainable in an original edition. It provides service and biographical details of the British Officers of the Bengal Army serving in 1861. The volume was compiled from official sources and from details supplied by the officers themselves and is supplemented by eleven useful appendices. It is an essential source of information to supplement Major Hodson’s four volumes, Officers of the Bengal Army 1758-1834.
