I had two first cousins several times removed, employed by different railway companies who in the course of their early years obtained military commissions, one in the GIP Railway Volunteer Rifles in 1911 and the other in the Bombay, Baroda & Central Railway Volunteer Rifles in 1912. Can anyone tell me the purpose of such units? Were they raised primarily to assist the Raj in putting down local insurrections or did they play a large role in the Empire and her wars?
I also had a great uncle who was awarded a commission in Singapore in 1905 as Lieutenant with the Malay States Volunteer Rifles. Would this have been a full time job, or something akin to the Territorials in Britain and part-time? He later became a fully fledged officer in the regular army before being invalided out in 1917.
