'View of the Lake and Part of the Eastern Road from Rangoon taken from the Advance of the 7th Madras Native Infantry', 1824 (c)

Coloured aquatint, 1825. From 'Birman Empire: Eighteen Views taken at or near Rangoon, 1824', a volume of 18 coloured aquatints, by G Hunt after J Moore, published by Kingsbury and Co and T Clay, 1825.

The 7th Madras Infantry were part of a seaborne expedition, consisting mainly of Madras Army troops under General Sir Archibald Campbell, that landed at the lightly defended city of Rangoon on 10 May 1824. This was after frontier clashes between British India and the Burmese Empire escalated into a full-blown war. The subsequent conflict lasted until 1826 and resulted in parts of Burma coming under the control of the East India Company. The British suffered relatively few battle casualties, but lost many men to heatstroke and disease.
