    Hello as I begin my search. Bharian was apparently where my relative was stationed in India. Google search's have so far not revealed anything obvious. Was it a barrack name? (am totally new to military stuff so it's all learning).
    I have a photo entitled 'the party' at Deolali aug 1942; (I'll post up later when I've learned how). When I've Googled Deolali there's feedback. Bharian and Google thinks I'm after Bahrain! But it's what my relative called his house when he came back.

    The FIBIS Fibiwiki page Murree has some links to some photographs of the camp at Barian or Bharian, WW1 period.

    There were many similar camps around Murree, used in the summer period.
