Entering the army in 1815, he was sent (1823) to India, where he served
in the first Burma War (1824-26), the first Afghan War (1839), and the
Sikh Wars (1843-49). During the Indian Mutiny, Havelock recaptured (July,
1857) Cawnpore (Kanpur) from the rebels, but he was too late to save the
British population from massacre.
In Sept., 1857, he relieved Lucknow from siege, but he
and his forces were then caught in the renewed siege. He died a few days
after the relief of the city in November.
