    Just researching Lord Robert Clive of India and Indian Mutiny of 1857, Plassey etc. Have travelled to Cawnpore and Lucknow twice in 2 years and know a reasonable amount now about the situations as they each developed between late May 1857 and liberation of the Residency late Nov 1857. Cawnpore is more to do with my direct family history, including Bibighar location and the infamous well, Sati Chaura massacre ghart, Wheelers Entrenchment etc. Plus the burial well just beyond the Entrenchment which is off limits to visitors / ie Military compound. Fascinating place to visit.

    Wish you all the best with your project

    Kind regards – Mark Probett (New Zealand)
