Major J. H. Poole, Commanding H. M. 22d Regiment, to the Assistant-Adjutant-General, Sinde Field Force.

Camp, Hyderabad, February 24, 1843. SIR, IN reference to No. 2, Division Orders of the 22d instant, I called upon the captains: 1843.

and officers commanding companies, to furnish me with the names and acts of individuals of the regiment under my command, who had especially distinguished themselves in the action of the 17th instant. The officers generally assert that they feel difficulty in making selections, where the conduct of every man of their companies was so satisfactory. In so general a field of action and persevering exertion, I equally feel at a loss where to draw a distinction ; but it may be proper to mention the names of private James O'Neill, of the light company, who took a standard whilst we were actively engaged with the enemy, and drummer Martin Delaney, who shot, bayoneted, and captured the arms of Meer Whullee Mahomed Khan, who was mounted, and directing the enemy in the hottest part of the engagement, when all the regiment behaved with enduring coolness and intrepidity. I hope the particular circumstances of these two cases will exonerate me from the imputation of doing injustice to all the brave soldiers of the regiment, by particularizing them.

I have, &c.

SIR,

February 24th, 1843. AGREEABLY to Division Orders of the 22d instant, I beg to bring to the especial notice of Major-General Sir C. Napier, K.C.B., the names of the following officers and men of the 1st grenadiers, who distinguished themselves by zeal and gallantry in the action of the 17th February.

Lieutenant Johnstone, who cut down a Beloochee, and saved the life of a sepoy, who had bayoneted this Belooch, but was overpowered in the life struggle.

Subadar Major Cooshall Sing, and Subadar Esseree Pursaud, likewise privates Sunker Misser and Kadaree Powar, who were conspicuous throughout the day for their zeal and gallantry.

I have, &c.

T. CLIBBORN, Major, Commanding 1st Grenadier Regiment N. I.

Major A. T. Reid, Commanding 12th Regiment,

to the Acting Assistant-Adjutant-General, Sinde and Beloochistan.

Hyderabad Fort, February 25, 1843. SIR, WITH reference to No. 3 of the Division Orders, dated the 22d instant, I have the honour to transmit, for the purpose of being laid before the Major-General, a nominal roll of non-commissioned officers, naicks, and privates, in the 12th regiment N. I., who have been reported to me by the officers in command, and in charge of the companies to which they belong, as having particularly distinguished themselves in the action of the 17th instant.

I take this opportunity of recording the gallant conduct of the late Captain and Brevet Major Jackson, who fell at the head of the grenadier company, in a personal conflict with several of the enemy. The other officers, Lieutenant and Brevet Captain Meade, and Lieutenant Wood, who were killed, were also most conspicuous when they fell, in cheering on their men at one of the most critical periods of the action. To the other European officers I am also much indebted for their gallant conduct and example throughout the day; but to Lieutenant and Brevet Captain Brown, the only mounted officer with me in the battle, in a particular degree I beg to place on record, the deep gratitude I must ever feel for the assistance he afforded me, as well as my admiration at the gallantry he displayed in cheering the men, throughout the conflict, at every part of the line, where the resistance was most hot and determined.

I have, &c.

A. T. REID, Major, Commanding 12th Regiment N. I.

C.B. the following officers of the 25th regiment N. I., who particularly distinguished themselves, by zeal and gallantry, in the action of the 17th of February 1843.

The whole of the sepoys behaved so well, that I consider it would be invidious to make any distinction.

Subadar Major Nund Ram, who, though wounded, remained with his company throughout the action.
