Field Artillery

No. 4 (Hyderabad) Field Battery

Whereas, the Indian Artillery regiments serving for the British were not allowed to man any guns bigger than Mountain artillery pieces, there were no such restrictions on the private armies of the Kingdoms within the Indian sub-continent. Hyderabad was the biggest and most powerful of the Kingdoms that managed to preserve some form of independence from the British. Successive rulers of Hyderabad provided the Indian army with their own privately financed troops.
