About Indian Army Quarterly List for 1 January 1912

The information in this database was compiled from the book, The Quarterly Indian Army List for January 1, 1912 by Army Head-Quarters, India, 1 January 1912, printed by Superintendent Government Printing, India, Calcutta, 1912. This book contains a listing of over 40,000 names of British and Indian troops during the British control of India. The British troops seem to contain only the officers of the various units (example: Bengal Lancers) while the Indian listings seem to contain the officers and enlisted, though I am not familiar with the ranks. Apologies are made in advance for any incorrect breakdown of names as I am not that familiar with the naming patterns in India.

Debra Graden of Leavenworth, Kansas, indexed this book. The quality of printing in this book was rather splotchy and often portions of letters are missing and margins were minimal. regrets to inform you that Debra Graden passed away unexpectedly. Photocopies of the original data will no longer be available upon request. We are grateful to Debra for the long hours she contributed to making her databases such useful resources to so many people.
