This Day in History: 1925-01-23

In India, the 2nd Battalion took part in Eastern Command manoeuvres, the first on any large scale since the end of the First World War. In keeping with emerging ideas on mobile warfare, 3rd Indian Division (of which the 2nd Battalion was part) worked with armoured cars and RAF units to carry out a number of successful outflanking actions. The Battalion returned to Dehra Dun at the end of the month.
