Talkar, Ezekiel

Resource Toolbox

Beni-Israel soldier born at Ahmedabad, India, in 1848 joined the 3d Regiment, Native Light Infantry, now called Bombay Rifles, on Sept. 16, 1864. He was promoted jemidar Jan. 1, 1877 subahdar Oct. 5, 1879 and subahdar-major June 12, 1890. During this period the regimental school owed its efficiency in musketry largely to his skill, most of the officers and senior non-commissioned officers receiving from him instruction in the theory of firing small arms. Talkar served in the Kathiawar Field Forces from 1865 to 1868, took part in the Afghan war (1879-80), was engaged in the affair at Kucheli Pass (medal), and saw active service also during the Burmese war of 1886-88 (medal and two clasps). In 1893 he retired from the service and joined the Dhrangadhra State Police as police inspector, later acting in a similar capacity at the city of Bhavnagar. In 1896 the maharaja Saheb, who greatly appreciated his services, transferred him to the State Regiment, in which he still (1905) holds the rank of second in command.
