HC Deb 25 November 1926 vol 200 cc563-4W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether any Indian troops are serving outside India, except at Aden, at the expense of the Indian Government; and, if so, whether he will give information as to the numbers so employed?


The only Indian troops serving outside India of which the cost is borne in whole or in part by the Government of India are a small number of other ranks forming the Consular escorts in Persia, and half a company of Indian Infantry stationed temporarily at Bahrein.
