    I tried the second file, Sentinels of the North-East, located in Books/Indian Subcontinent.
    I did have to click on it a few times, but it did download.

    Thanks for the recents links on the Assam Rifles, J&K Rifles and the 10th Gurkha Rifles. We all appreciate your updates and efforts

    Great links - thanks Maureen.

    The Assam Rifles book is interesting because there is a good level of detail on them and their role with V Force. There do not seem to be any War Diaries for the Assam Rifles at Kew but the level of detail suggests that good original material exists somewhere. In the Regimental Archives in India probably?

    The download of this book has disappeared:
    "1957 Bugle and Kukri–story of the 10th Princess Mary’s Own Gurkha Rifles by Mullaly"
    Does anyone have a copy they saved when it existed?

    10 GR - or their association - have been relatively prolific publishers so I'd suspect they're protecting their IP.

    I downloaded a copy of the the 1957 Bugle and Kukri - Story of the 10th Princess Mary's Own Gurkha Rifles by Mullaly. If anyone is interested, start a conversation and I will provide you with a download link.

    I'm interested in all three links that Maureen provided, usually Pahar is quite reliable but it is odd that none of the links work.

    Regarding 1957 Bugle and Kukri–story of the 10th Princess Mary’s Own Gurkha Rifles by Mullaly s
    Using the link
    1957 Bugle and Kukri–story of the 10th Princess Mary’s Own Gurkha Rifles by Mullaly s I can see a download button on the page. I clicked on that and the download started (although I then terminated it)

    Sometimes the download button does not display (do not know why it is intermittent) and then you need to go to the Books section at the top of the Pahar webpage and download it from there.

    Perhaps if you are still unable to download, there is a problem with your internet speed, (or maybe the website is busy? but I don't technically know about this) and you need to try another time the day. I know for another Indian website, some years ago it was commented that very early UK time was best for downloading.
