World War I
The regiment took part in the Chitral Expedition in 1895 and World War I. During World War I the regiment was in the 14th Indian Division and took part in the Second Battle of Kut and the Capture of Baghdad during the Mesopotamia Campaign.
After World War I the Indian government reformed the army moving from single battalion infantry regiments to multi-battalion regiments. In 1922, the 37th Dogras became the 1st Battalion (Prince of Wales's Own) 17th Dogra Regiment. The regiment was allocated to the new Indian Army on independence.
