Summary
[Illustrated with over one hundred maps, photos and portraits, of the battles, individuals and places involved in the Indian Mutiny]. The fascinating diary of an officer of the 1st Madras Fusiliers who fought with General Havelock's column to the relief of Lucknow during the Indian Mutiny. "A part of the corps [1st Madras Fusiliers] was amongst the first, to arrive at Allahabad...and on the 7th July they started on their perilous march... Fighting their way from day to day, they soon reached and took Cawnpore, and there alas! became aware of the saddest event of those terrible times, viz. the massacre by the insurgents of the European women and children. Anxiety to relieve Lucknow caused General Havelock to hurry forward..in Oude they fought several battles, but towards the middle of Aug. the General reluctantly felt obliged to retrace his steps to Cawnpore. Cholera as well as fighting had so reduced his numbers that there was no alternative but to wait for reinforcements. These arrived about the 15th Sep. with General Outram in command, and then the recruited column recrossed the river, and began its final advance on Lucknow, which was entered on the 25th. To that memorable day these letters do not extend, owing to the complete interruption of the usual means of conveying intelligence. Lady Inglis, in her interesting book "The Siege of Lucknow," has given a vivid description of the joy with which the army under Generals Havelock and Outram were welcomed by the beleaguered garrison. Thus reinforced they kept the enemy at bay, until adequate relief arrived under the command of Lord Clyde. "Among them was that of my dear husband, who was mortally wounded in a sortie on the 5th Oct," Helen M. I. Groom
