Excerpt from Forty-Three Years in India: Including the Cabul Disasters, Captivities in Affghanistan and the Punjaub, and a Narrative of the Mutinies in Rajputana

After attending the Military College of Addiscombe, I received my appointment from the Honorable East India Company of a cornetcy of cavalry on their Bengal establishment; and on the 5th of May, 1821, I proceeded to India, arriving in Calcutta on the 10th of September of the same year, and was immediately posted to the 2nd regiment of Light Cavalry.

I remained six weeks in the Cadet Barracks in Calcutta. The chief incidents during my stay there were my getting a severe fall the first time I mounted a horse in my cavalry uniform, from, I fancy, using my spurs unnecessarily. I was picked up senseless and taken into a good Samaritan’s house in Chowringhee.
