  1. More years ago than I care to count, I idly pulled a book from the library stacks and took it home to read with a pile of other books. I loved it and read it twice. Of course, the author and title are now buried deep in my subconscious (I think that's what happens) so I'm unable to easily add it to my little library and I very much want to do so. Having been successful in my previous search, I thought I'd try again. The story takes place between WW I and WW II in British India. It tells the story of a young boy, and his sister I think. They are the children of the colonel of a regiment of lancers in the regular army. The boy is young enough that he is still at home, but being sent off to England for school is looming in his immediate future. The colonel is preoccupied by the problems associated with combining his regiment with another regiment of lancers. I think, but am not at all sure, that the result of this combination was the 20th/21st Lancers. Certainly it was one of those "fractured" numbers that used to drive the American brass to distraction. And of course, these numbers do not relate to a genuine regiment; of if they do, then my memory is wrong with respect to the numbers, though there are/were some cavalry regiments that retained the number of both regiments in the new title. Students of the British Army will understand that regimental identities are far more important in the British Army than in most other lesser armies. Our hero has a number of adventures and at some point, the bite of the cobra rears it's hooded head. If anyone remembers this story, I'd be delighted to hear from them. Thanks in advance...
