Royal Nepal Army in Waziristan War


Royal Nepal Army in Waziristan War

In the 1910s, the rebels in the Waziristan region of British India had revolted against British rule.

The Pathan warriors (called "Masuds") from Wazirstan were outstanding fighters and they had vowed to fight the British who were at this moment deeply involved in the First World War. The British requested the Nepalese Army to help neutralize the movement. Mahendra Dal and First Rifle Bn were involved in the suppression of the movement from March 1917. This was a joint military operation - Nepalese 1st Rifle with British 43rd Brigade and the Mahendra Dal Battalion with 45th Bde. The Nepalese Army had to accept many casualties.

RNA units, British Gurkha Regiments and British regulars had fought shoulder to shoulder. Many RNA soldiers were decorated with British medals.
