Two British parliamentary Papers. The first [398] of 1871 44pp. The second [210] of 1872: large folding map coloured in outline (Cachar Kooky Country), 8 folding plans of stockades and fortifications, xii.527pp, Each paper is disbound as a single text block, they are fully sewn and ready for binding again either together or singly, all maps neatly folded, undisturbed. The first paper notes that this was not the first time tea plantations had been attacked by "savage and predatory hill tribes" and the first letter from the India Secretary in London (Duke of Argyll) to the Viceroy (Lord Mayo) recalls recent failures to deal with the problem: "I am not surprised that the entire failure of the last retaliatory expedition, undertaken into the country of the Loosai Kookies, should have led you to review the history of our relations with the trinbes along the entire frontier." The second and major paper on the subject is a massive accumulation of material including the letters and communications from the Viceroy (Mayo) to London, from the Commissioner of Chittagong Hill Tracts (Lord H Ulick Browne), General Bourchier, Maj-Gen Nuthall, Col Lumsden, Col Thesiger, etc. There are several communications in the form of diaries kept by officers involved in actions against the Looshai. The policy later adopted is summed up by Mr J W Edgar (Civil Offcier with the Cachar Column of the Looshai Expedition, whose later diary occupies some 15pp): "If successful measures for the effective punishment of offenders be taken next year, we can with safety carry out any policy we choose to adopt, and of course outposts and roads can do no possible harm; but a policy not accompanied by punishment for past outrages would in all probability result in failure." A very important series of papers dealing with these North-East Frontier disturbances, the campaign occasioned by which earned an additional campaign bar to the India General Service Medal of 1854. Following the abduction of a British Planter named Winchester two columns were sent to quell the rising (the Cachar Column under Brig_Gen Bourchier and the Chittagong Column under Brig-Gen Brownlow.
