HistoryIn 1745 Lieutenant General Richard Venables was made the Governor of Bengal and set about building up the British Military in the Area and Imposing the Laws of Great Britain upon the People of Bengal, This lead to numerous small scale rebellions that were quickly crushed by the skill and determination of the British Army. When in 1746 General Venables decided to reorganise the army into a suitable peace keeping force he had to decide wither or not to split the British Forces into small groups or just two larger forces controlling a certain amount of territory, Venables decided to put One Company in charge of peace keeping in a 12 mile radius of their main base and also decided to build a number of Fortifications to house these British Troops. He Also founded the First Sepoy Regiments under the Direct Control of the East India Trading Company, Trained by the Army and fighting alongside them, The Sepoys were a brilliant new fighting force the British had mustered.
Also Bengal was split into four Sections under the control of Venables, but with a Military Officer Governing the certain Section he was allocated.
