                                    IMLA 11 'Water!' Two bhistis and a bullock with water-skins. (£8.50).

                                    For caste reasons Indian troops never carried waterbottles. Instead every sub-unit had its own bhistis and water-bullock. The Company's European units and British Army units also operated the same system, but because the Mutiny started in the hot season soon took steps to acquire water bottles. This set can of course be used for both sides in the Mutiny, but can also be used across pretty much any 18th/19th Century conflict in the Indian sub-continent.

                                    Note that there is almost no historical data on the regiment's colours, beyond the fact that the second or regimental colour had a yellow field, though we know that the regiment had no pre-1857 battle honours. The reconstruction we offer here is substantially speculative but based on other similar irregular infantry regiments.

                                    IMREB 18 Gwalior or other Local Contingent Sepoys in full uniform and shakoes attacking.

                                    Note that by 1857 the shako was defunct in the HEIC's regular regiments of Bengal Native Infantry (BNI), but was nonetheless widely retained amongst the regiments employed by the independent statelets.  This code could, however, function perfectly happily  as BNI sepoys from the previous decade, and as such is suitable for the two Anglo-Sikh Wars, the 1st Anglo-Afghan  War and the Opium War. Note that one casting is duplicated in the code of four. When at length the Gwalior Contingent mutinied and joined the fighting around Cawnpore and Lucknow, it initially took the field in full uniform as portrayed here.
