Book Description

PROBYN’S HORSE News Letter 1941 to 1946 [and] 1946 to 1947. Bolarum [India]: Bolarum Printing Press, 1947 - 7. 4to. pp. [3], 68: [3], 76. Cloth with printed label, both issues retaining the original wrappers; the cloth rather stained but internally unaffected. Probyn’s Horse, the 5th King Edward VII’s Own Lancers, was allocated to Pakistan under partition and the English officers replaced by native soldiers. After Pakistan became a republic it was renamed 5 Horse although it continues to be informally referred to as Probyn’s Horse and is an armoured regiment of the Pakistan army. These informative newsletters were therefore the final ones issued under colonial rule. Neither Worldcat nor Jisc locates any copies although the Imperial War Museum seems to have issues post partition.
