             The Third Battalion of East India Company could not march for Dehradun from Meerut before 14th October 1814. Because, the designated Commander for Third Battalion Major General Gillespie did  not reach to Meerut before that date. Third Battalion marched under the leadership of the commander of 53th Regiment Lieutenant Colonel   Maubi. There were following army men and supply men with Third Battalion (John Premble)-
                          European Solders

  The use of cavalry was possible in Dehradun plains only.

      European Officers agreed to use fewer materials with them. However, officers were not ready for reducing personnel goods. A Army officer Lewdly required sic camels for taking his personal articles and on top of that he could not take alcohol bottles with other personal items. It was difficult for arranging animals and carriers. Therefore it took time in marching for the battalion.
