Battle of Adyar remembers 10,000 Indian Sepoys, 200 years later

Battle of Adyar remembers 10,000 Indian Sepoys, 200 years later
Soldiers rend their battle cry as their commander shouts “Fire!” and they fire from their European muskets, pausing to reload as a second line advances, takes position and fires again, all the time wading through the shallows of the Adyar River. Can you imagine the excitement of seeing such a ‘battle’? That’s exactly what ardent history buffs were in for on Sunday morning, as they saw a recreation of the Battle of Adyar (1746), staged by the National Cadet Corps and hosted by the Colours of Glory Foundation (a non-profit organisation promoting awareness of India’s military heritage).
