Miltary history


In 1901 the town had two flour mills and a brass and iron foundry, and its trades included silk manufacture and carpentry.


The cantonment had been established in 1846, four miles to the west of the town, and usually contained two batteries of field artillery, one battalion of British infantry, one regiment of native cavalry and a battalion of native infantry.

The Prince Consort’s Own Rifle Brigade, 3rd Battalion, was stationed there in 1892.
