The Naval Brigades of the Indian Mutiny PDF

The sailors and guns of the Royal Navy in India



The activities of the Royal Navys brigades-when its sailors left their ships with their precious guns to fight on land in concert with the army-are justifiably compelling to students of military history. Unusual aspects of warfare are always evocative and the naval brigades have performed exceptionally (as their several V. C. awards demonstrate) in many campaigns, often in difficult and exotic locations and on hard fought battlefields-particularly during the small colonial wars of the Victorian era. Perhaps the most interesting of all these campaigns was when the crews of H. M. S Shannon and H. M. S Pearl were called upon to fight during the Indian Mutiny of 1857. The crews fought in different theatres of the campaign

Naval brigade guns and gunners at the Siege of Sevastopol (1854–1855), during the Crimean War.. The field gun competition commemorates the participation of a naval brigade in the relief of Ladysmith during the Boer War, when 12-pounder guns from HMS Terrible and Powerful were dragged across almost 200 mi (320 km) of rough terrain from Durban in October 1899.
