Looking for details on a (British) Indian Army officer not listed here yet? *
Just e-mail me, and I might be able to help out.
Of course, any additions, corrections etc. can also be e-mailed.

* Most of the 'indigenous' Indian Army officers are not shown in the sources at my disposal, so can't add these on these pages.
Note. Abbreviations and explanations can be found at the help page.
