They cover Meerut, Poona training camp etc. In 1943 26th Hussars were disbanded and the Regiment split between the Chindits and 3rd Carabiniers. Go to Archive, photos, Various to see the pictures.

Brilliant ! A different continent to where we served of course, different vehicles too, but uncanny (& fascinating) to see the same sort of scenes, poses and comradeship shown then just as we enjoyed so many years later. Thanks to Chris for sharing the photos, and to Freddy ( and son !) for getting them onto the site - much enjoyed. John (JKW)
