  The National Archives quotes 3942/1 for August 1914 to October 1915. Putting this into the Ancestry search brings up 'Various {Infantry Bridages, 7th Indian Meerut Div.}',

 On Ancestry click.

 

It starts on page 168 and runs for 612 pages. The Indian Army diaries on Ancestry are in a complete mess. I have indexed the Lahore and the Meerut Div diaries down to Battalion level and I can safely say they are probably some of the best War Diaries I have worked on. They are hidden gems.  Ditto the Indian Army diaries for Gallipoli. MG
