Cadet Regiment

There was a cadet company at Mount Abu, part of the 2nd Battalion, Bombay, Baroda and Central India Railway Volunteer Rifles.[1] There is no mention of a cadet company in the reminiscences of Kenneth Staynor (above), so perhaps the cadet company was connected with Abu Lawrence School.
