Abstract

Colonel Heyland’s observations on army horses and cavalry regiments in the final stages of the Third Anglo-Burmese War was originally published as a chapter (XVII) in History of the Third Burmese War, 1885, 1886, and 1887, in 1889. The organization of transport and mobile field forces was a significant problem for British forces in the early months of the war. This account thus remains a critical source on an otherwise obscure topic of Burma’s colonial history and Burmese resistance to British imperial expansion.
