The 2nd Battalion, with a total strength of 748 all ranks, left Dehra Dun for Abbottabad (now in Pakistan), reaching it 10 days later. They were deployed in anticipation of action against the Kohistani tribesmen but the latter, on discovering Abbottabad to be full of troops, returned peacefully to their valleys. The 2nd Battalion remained at Abbottabad until August then returned to Dehra Dun.
