8th Bn Cheshire Regiment in India 1917 - 1919


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'd be very grateful if anyone could shed light on what the 8th Bn Cheshire Regt would have been doing in India in 1917-1919?

I understand that the battalion was in Mesopotamia at that time, but I have a soldier who enlisted on 26.4.17 and was sent almost immediately to Bombay and Kirkee.

I have sufficient details of his service - unfortunately he was ill for much of his time there and died on the way back to the UK in 1919, but I'm intrigued to know whether the battalion was there for training purposes or another reason?
