THE 11th SIKH REGIMENT.
The Sikh Brigade was brought into being shortly after the Indian Mutiny by the raising of the 14th, 15th and 45th Battalions of Jat Sikhs,
In 1887 two more battalions - the 35th and 36th were raised, and the last battalion of Jat Sikhs-the 47th-completed this famous Brigade in 1901.
For many years there was no official tie between these six units but always the closest comradeship existed; it was not until the Indian Army was reorganised in 1922 that the Sikh Brigade was officially recognised as at entity.
