18th -19thC Indo-Persian Re-enactment

Postby taliesin44 » Fri Sep 28, 2007 9:10 pm

Hello, Ive been advised to ask here by David Debono
I'm currently a Viking re-enactor but considering branching out into another era and area, which appears to be totally uncoverd.
So
I am currently carrying out research into the European
influence in India, around the 1780-1800 period, with a view
of putting together a small group or at least a one man
display, based on the life of George Thomas The Rahja from
Tipperary. This arrises from a large collection of
Indo-Persian arms in my possesion.
Do you know of any of your associated groups, that may cover
this period, the early campaigns of Wellington and the
English countering the French, while fighting the Rajha
princes in India. Or any individuals that may want to discuss the possibility?
There may be some of you that may recall the Indian armour and kula khud helmet in the beer tent, Kelmarsh 2006. That was me!
Any information appreciated.
> Cheers

Nearest in date would be the 47th who do AWI....It's a bit early for the Napoleonics.

Thanks to all for the assistance.
I really think it could be a interesting area & era, as you have the French/English & many native populations to consider and the clash to seriously different fighting methods and technology. Also the influence of groups like the East India company and the many individual mercenaries operating on all sides.
My main interst is actually the Indian side of things but being white European myself, tends to mean I'd have to portray a character like George Thomas who went native.
Ive added a photo of a little of my collection, from which I hope to draw the resources, at least as far arms are concerned.
Cheers all
Andy
