Towards the end of 1861 Thomas Rattray was posted to Sumthulpore in Command
of a force consisting of 8th and 9th Police Battalions, the Sumthulpore
Levies & a troop of the Behar Horse to suppress a rebellion in the District.
Returned in Feb.1862 having successfully accomplished the mission.
Can any one give me details on the 8th and 9th Police Battalions?
Does any one have details on the rebellion that occurred in the Sumthulpore
