- The Bugle. A Chronicle of Regimental News. The British Library holds "vol. 1. no. 2.-vol. 13. no. 330. May 1894-Sept. 1902. Imperfect; wanting vol. 1. no. 3 and vol. 9. no. 232-vol. 12. no. 312" It appears likely there were no volumes after this date, for this period. The Bugle recommenced again in the 1920s, but the British Library does not appear to have copies.

Between the Wars 1920-1936
In 1920 2nd Battalion moved to India - a posting which lasted until 1936, when it returned to Britain via the Sudan. The period in India also included a short posting to Shanghai in 1927.
James Henry Miller travelled with a draft in 1932 to the 2nd Battalion in India. He sailed on the Nevassa  to Bombay, then travelled to Barrackpore, where the barracks had long mosquito nets. His postings included Ishapore where he was posted to guard duty at the rifle factory where monkeys would drop things on the guards in the pitch dark at night time. On a Friday there was what was called buggin' night, where beds were taken out to get rid of bed bugs. One fellow soldier died after being bitten by a Cobra.
