    Basically, sabers issue to native Bengali cavlary whose princes would have agreed to align with the British Raj. These units then rebelled during the mutiny in 1857 and fled to/were chased into Nepal, where they were disarmed, and these were put into storage.

    I already bought new tires this month otherwise this would be added to my wall.
