Harry,

 

This is very interesting.  I look forward to the continuing story.  Never a good proposition to split your army in two.

 

The very best,

 

Alex

Well done again

Greatly enjoying the next chapter in your history lessons mate.  Can you discuss a bit the weapons used by the opposing sides?  I think the Brits were still using the Brown Bess but I believe the Baker was no longer in use.  So what did the fellows carry?

Forgot to highlight the sources used in the Wikipedia article I provided earlier this morning -- here they are;

 

Sources[edit]

  • Farwell, Byron (1973). Queen Victoria's little wars. Wordsworth Editions. ISBN 1-84022-216-6.

  • Featherstone, Donald (2007). At Them with the Bayonet: The First Anglo-Sikh War 1845-1846. Leonnaur Books.

  • Hernon, Ian (2003). Britain's forgotten wars. Sutton Publishing Ltd. ISBN 0-7509-3162-0.

  • A highly fictionalised (lasicivious, titillating and scurrilous) description of the origins and course of the First Anglo-Sikh War (as well as various Sikh fortifications including breastworks) can be found in the comedy/adventure novel Flashman and the Mountain of Light by George MacDonald Fraser (1990). However, the book's well-researched footnotes are a source for serious historical information and further reading, such as the memoirs of some of the principals involved.

I was unaware of this one, which looks interesting, so -- must get my hands on it one way or another....
