The Indian Army was the principal army of the British Indian Empire before its dismantling in 1947. It was responsible for the defence of both British India and the princely states, which could also have their own armies. The Indian Army was an important part of the British Empire's forces, both in India and abroad, particularly during the First World War and the Second World War.
