Brass gong taken by the 61st (South Gloucestershire) Regiment during the capture of Dehli, 1857

The assault on Delhi began on 14 September 1857 after artillery breached the city walls and sappers blew in the Kashmir Gate. Following a week of vicious street fighting, the British and their Indian allies then ransacked the city in an orgy of looting and killing. Delhi's capture was key to British suppression of the Indian Mutiny (1857-1859).
