The First Anglo-Sikh War started when the British tried to secure the border of the imperial territories and the increasingly turbulent area of Punjab. Shortly after, the Sikh army crossed the River Sutlej into their territories, starting the conflict.
The East India Company Army forced them to retire and, after a few fierce engagements, they marched against the Sikhs as they retreated towards Aliwal.
The 16th Lancers, along with some Indian cavalry troops, made a dashing charge against the Sikh regiments that, trained in the European fashion, formed a square to defend themselves. Nevertheless, they managed to defeat them, even at the cost of many casualties.
Our figure is a classic from Elite Miniaturas that portrays a trooper of that regiment during the campaign.
