World War One[edit]

I have just read "Allenby of Armageddon" by Raymond Savage. This mentions Pertab Singh visiting his regiment (the Jodhpur Lancers) in Palestine during 1918, just missing out on his long expressed wish to lead a cavalry charge, and accompanying the support squadron after the charge had been driven home. He was described as being a superb warrior, as brave as a lion, and a great gentleman. After the strain of too active soldiering, he had to convalesce in an Alexandria Hospital.

Maybe some expert could add details of his career in WW1? He was in his 70's at this time. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.16.0.232 (talk) 07:19, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
