Excellent extensive collection of original snapshot photographs illustrating military service and everyday life in the British army cantonments and nearby towns in India during WW1. The photos were taken by a young officer of the 1st Garrison Battalion of the Royal Scots Fusiliers, stationed in the Dalhousie (modern-day Himachal Pradesh), Chakrata (Uttarakhand) and Jhansi (Uttar Pradesh) cantonments in 1916-1918. The album contains over seventy photos of British military cantonments and camps, scenes with marching troops and portraits of officers and soldiers, including the compiler. Interesting images include three large group portraits of “the Officers, Kailana Hill Depot, June 1917,” “Detachment Football Team, 1st Gn. Bn. Royal Scots Fusiliers, Kailana 1917,” and “Pipe Band, 1st Gn. Bn. R.S.F., Mankote, Dalhousie, 3-9-16.” There are also historically significant photos of “massed pipe bands paying at the Armistice sports,” “a portion of the crowd at the Armistice sports,” “Murray’s encampment at Khailar,” “the officer’s mess, 1st Gn. Bn. R.S.F.,” military camp in Naini Khad, “sergeant’s mess, Mankote,” “transport lines, Banikhet,” “quartermaster’s stores, Mankote,” “Naini Khud rest camp,” “Dunera rest camp,” “No. 24” and “No. 52” bungalows at the Jhansi Fort,” “men’s quarters at Jhansi Fort,” “native working party at the fort,” “Kalsi Dak bungalow,” “officers mess and quarters from the barracks,” “Saiah rest camp,” “Kalsi rest camp,” “Kailana hospital from the barracks,” “Chakrata from Kailana,” “crossing the stream at Jumnipur,” “the bridge at Saiah,” “mending the road at Saiah,” “leaving Kalsi,” “inspection of detachment, ¼ Royal West Kents, Kailana, September 1917,” “15 Pounder, Mankote barracks,” “inspection of lines,” and many others.

R.S.F.,” “battalion scouts,” “detachment sports team, winners of Kailana Cup,” “detachment football team,” “Pte. McDermot” (playing bagpipe), “Lance Corpl. Cox, 1st Gn. Bn. Bedford Reg.,” “James and Newman on the top of Pandulena,” et al.
Over sixty phots show nearby hill stations, towns and villages, and portray local people. They include the views of Dalhousie (a mountain scene “near Dunera,” “Banikhet Bazar,” “Balun Bazar,” “Dalhousie Bazar from Circular Road,” “Dalhousie from Panch Pool”); Jhansi (“McDonnell High School,” “a corner of Jhansi city,” “Hindu temple,” “near Khailar Camp,” “the Narain Bagh,” “ruined temple, Jhansi,” “view from Elephant Bridge,” “the Rani’s Garden,” “Jhansi City,” “the Old Palace at Barwa Saga”); Chakrata (“Saiah,” “native houses at Saiah”), etc. Photos of the locals portray “hill women at Dandiara,” “Jan Mahommed,” “Umra,” “the Mankote postman” (with a belt buckle of “Dalhousie post office”), “Asrah Khan,” “Ameer Ali,” “Ram Jani,” “the chowkidar,” a girl named “Najeer Jan,” “Nautch girls, Delhi,” “rickshaw coolies,” “native acrobats at Naini Khud,” “Camel boy, Dunera,” “snake charmers at Benares,” people leaving a train “at Agra Railway station,” “the Abdar,” and many others.
The rest of the photos show various sites and architectural objects in the Indian cities, visited by the album’s compiler. Among them are the views of Lucknow (Great Imambara, Jama Mosque, Pearl Palace, Gomti River, ruins of the Residency, Dr. Fayrer’s House, Bailie Guard Gate, La Martiniere College), Kanpur (Memorial Well), Delhi (Fort, “native wedding,” Kashmir Gate), Agra (Taj Mahal, “the burning ghats on the Jumna,” “building the Pyre,” “the Pyre alight,” Pearl Mosque, Akbar’s Tomb, Jama Mosque), Amritsar (Golden Temple, “Pathans at Amritsar station,” “the chief constable and Sikhs”), Nashik (Godavery River, “Anandwali Weir,” “a bathing ghat,” “view from Pandulena,” street views), Kolkata (Jain Temple, street views, “scenes on the Hooghly at Calcutta”), Benares (Kedar Ghat, Munshi Ghat, Manikarnika Ghat), Betwa River, etc. The album also contains seven photos of Scottish soldiers and officers “taken at Aberdeen, August 1915,” with two shots of young military men at the beach wearing army towels with visible signs “Bathing Station, 1912.” A dozen photos taken on the way to India in February 1916 shows “a football match, Port Said,” soldiers climbing “the greasy pole at the ship’s sports,” disembarking at Bombay and arriving in Jhansi on March 6, 1916. Overall a historically significant extensive collection of original photos giving a great insight into the history of the British army in India during WW1.
