India

Good day all,

Straight forward question with a slight twist.

Was India a theatre of war? The NA site as 6, Asia and g, Frontier regions of India, but does not have India listed as anything else.

I'm just trying to sort a date of entry out for a man who disembarked at Bombay 29.07.1917 and then embarked from Bombay 15.11.1917 to disembarked Basra 21.11.1917.

Would the date of entry be 29.07.1917 or 21.11.1917?

Regards. Llew.

I'd go with 21/11/1917 as date of entry into theatre as, as you suggest, India was not a theatre of war in itself.

Regards

India was like: the UK, Canada and other Dominions not an active war zone. Specific areas were, ones that are now familiar to news followers again.

Large garrisons were stationed in India, but they could be thousands of miles away from a war zone, just as they are now!
