A Ghoorkah (Ghurka) about to attack a mutineer
Scene inside a tent at Delhi
There is a small article between the prints, continued on the reverse - and I can't resist a quote
'We had been out fighting all day clearing subseemundee of mutineers, and had at last finished the business, when, quite exhausted, our men lay down to rest. Two of the fusiliers and a little Ghoorkah were sitting by a window, when one of the enemy, who had concealed himself in a dark corner, finding all was quiet, gently popped out his head to see what was doing. He happened to look first the other way, when the little Ghoorkah, as quick as thought, whipped out his Koorkerie, and sliced his head off in an instant, to the great delight of the Fusiliers, who could not for ten minutes shoulder their muskets for laughing' unquote
