The Indian Mutiny letters of Colonel HP Pearson August 1856 to March 1859


In 1858 Ensign Hugh Pearson embarked at Chatham for service with the 84th (York and Lancaster) Regiment in India, little suspecting that within a few short months he would be taking part in the dramatic events of the Indian Mutiny.

His letters to his family, published here for the first time, tell of the dramatic events that unfolded from the first rumblings of unrest at Barrackpore, to the shocking news of the massacre at Cawnpore, and the struggle to relieve Lucknow.
