The first unit comprises the 15th Sikhs which were part of the mixed Indian Brigade which sailed from Bombay following the death of Gordon and the fall of Khartoum in January 1885. This formation consisted of the 15th Sikhs themselves, 9th Bengal Cavalry, 17th Bengal Infantry, 28th Bombay Infantry and a company of Madras Sapper and Miners.

These are a unit with an increasingly good history of diligently performing the tasks assigned in our battles. Lets see if they continue their form in the next game.
