The Battle of Mudki, 18th December 1845, between the forces of the East India Company and the Sikh Empire of the Punjab during the First Sikh War (1845-6). It was a costly battle for both sides: among the British dead was Major General Sir Robert Henry Sale, veteran of Seringapatam, the First Burmese War and the First Afghan War, in which he commanded the garrison of Jalalabad and rescued his wife from Afghan captivity.
