In the course of his career General Dartnell served in the 86th Regiment with the Central India Field Force under Sir Hugh Rose (Lord Strathnairn) in 1857-8, and was present at the storm and capture of Chandarec, and led the only successful escalade attack on the fortress of Jhansi. He was severely wounded, mentioned in despatches (medal and clasp, captain, unattached, and brevet of major).
