Item: 187565
Surname: Cobban
First Name: Captain George Geddes Mackenzie
Ship: -
Date: 1843
Place: India
Source: The Spectator Volume 17, p. 224
Details: While Sir Hugh Gough entered Scindia from the North-east, with the force which he had collected in Bundelcund, Major-General John Grey also crossed the Scindian frontier with the left wing of the Gwalior army, about 2,000 strong, from the South-west; and pushed on rapidly to Punniar, twelve miles from Gwalior; which he reached on the 28th of December. As he approached, the enemy, about 12,000 in number, took up a strong position near the fortified village of Mangore. Several hostile movements were made; but the real action may be said to have commenced about four oclock in the afternoon, and to have consisted in a succession of fights, in which the natives were driven from height to height, until finally routed on the approach of nightfall. They lost the whole of their guns, 24 in number, all their ammunition, and some treasure. Their loss in men was very severe; but could not be ascertained, as they carried off several of their wounded during the night. So also was severe. Captain Stewart aud Captain Cobban were killed. Directly after the action at Maharajpoor, the fort of Gwalior was surrendered; and the Maharaja, the Maharanee, and leading chiefs, came to the camp and made their submission
