114th Mahrattas Wikipedia
The 114th Mahrattas were an infantry regiment of the British Indian Army. The regiment traces their origins to 1800, when they were raised as the 2nd Battalion, 7th Regiment of Bombay Native Infantry.
During World War I they were attached to the 17th Indian Division for the Mesopotamia Campaign. They took part in the Action at Fat-ha Gorge on the Little Zab and the Battle of Sharqat, in October 1918.
After World War I the Indian government reformed the army moving from single battalion regiments to multi battalion regiments. In 1922, the 114th Mahrattas became the 10th (Training) Battalion 5th Mahratta Light Infantry. After independence they were one of the regiments allocated to the Indian Army.
