39 Gorkha Training Centre, Varanasi Cantt., U.P. <BR>Do we have a 39th Gorkha regiment? The BR list of Infantry regiments does not say about this unit!<P>There used to be an ASC Centre (North) and ASC Center (South). The South centre used to be in Bangalore. But the ASC Centres have been amalgamated. The new ASC Centre is in Bangalore.<P>The Corps of Military Police Centre is also in Bangalore. I don't know whether the Defence Security Corps can be treated as an Infantry unit, if yes then its centre is at Cannanore (Kerala).<BR><P>------------------<BR>Sachin P.K<BR>-------------------------<BR><A HREF="http://sachin_pk.tripod.com" TARGET=_blank>Sachin's Camp on the Web</A><BR>-------------------------<BR>

Sachin<P>After India got the Gorkha Regiments after independence, Economy dictated that One regimental center was shared by two Gorkha Rifles Regiments. <P>In short 39 Gorkha Rifles Regimental Center is the Regimental Center for 3 GR and 9 GR. Similary other GRs were clubbed together, 14 Gorkha Rifles REgimental Center and 58 GRRC. The only exemption is 11 Gorkha Rifles which had its own RC because it was the odd one out of the Seven Gorkha Regiments.<P>Bishwa<P>Add this<P>Army Ordnance Corps Center, Secunderabad

Bishwa: I'd like to copy your list to my site with the credit to you and would like you to be responsible for keeping it current and filling it in with greater detail. You would be welcome to use the list elsewhere, as long as the other people credited it to ordersofbattle. I have a similar arrangement with Mandeep. Meanwhile, I have not recieved your RR details.

I think the ladhak Scouts are grouped with JaK LI . As the scouts are not a seperate regiment, they share the JaK Li center at Srinagar.<BR>

dsandhu, how can that be <P>Sharing of regimental centers is not new.<P>The Kumaun and Naga do it. The Nagas having only 3 battalions being the factor.<P>The Gorkhas do it. A Gorkha regiment having only 5-6 battalions is a factor.

dsandhu,<BR> It is possible you are correct. Mandeep's Sikh Regiment page lists 18 units. I calculated the number of units from the BR Sikh Regiment page.<P> The difference between the two pages are<BR>1. 9 Sikh is present in BR it is not present in Mandeeps.<BR>2.14 Sikh is present in Mandeeps page but is absent from BR.<BR>3.20 Sikh is present in Mandeeps page but is absent from the BR listing. <P>Infact for the Sikh LI also there is a difference. 12 & 15 Sikh are not there in the BR listing however Mandeep has it under his Sikh LI page.<P>Good point. I will crosscheck the rest.<p>[This message has been edited by bishwa (edited 26-09-2000).]

IF i find it do you want me to post it on this thread or would it be better to start a different thread. Also I have alist all the MVC winners Regiment wise. Any one interested in that list?

DS: May I use your info for my site, with credit to you and BR? This may sound strange, but since it is now published, I can attribute a source. If BR puts it up permenantly, I will provide a direct link to the site as well as summarise it on my site, and put the coyright to you and BR so if anyone wants to copy it they will have to ask you.<P>My personal feeling is that ultimately you may find some other battalions lurking around! IA doesnt all the time tell everything!<P>I was diasspointed Rakesh took off the div site because that information is actually already all known, but I appreciate his point of view. I think known or not since it is not all published in one place he doesnt want to be held morally responsible, and ofcourse he feels very unconfortable, as he made clear many times in this and other contexts. He has to live with his conscience, and I have to respect that. <P>I'm also a little agitated because I was going to publish the list (with permission, of course) after making a couple of minor changes, and there was actually a bunch of stuff from the last year or two I didnt know!<BR>Now I have to make other arrangements!
