It's a little misleading the timeline in the fact that the 2 / 4th Regt didnt take part in any fighting during the AZW , obviously some officers here and there were seconded , and some infantryman may have been involved with the Mounted Infantry , the Regt as a fighting force didnt see any action , they were mainly used on the lines of communication and escort duties . Happy to be corrected You need to study mo
