Known as 11th Regiment of Madras Native Infantry in the Madras Army
Known as 71st Coorg Rifles in the Indian Army


The 71st Coorg Rifles were an infantry regiment of the British Indian Army. They could trace their origins to 1767, when they were raised as the 15th Battalion Coast Sepoys.
The regiment served in the Third Anglo-Mysore War but saw no more active service during the nineteenth century. In 1901 as the 11th Madras Infantry, it was reorganised and the basis of recruitment changed from Madrasi to Coorg soldiers. The restructured regiment was renamed the 71st Coorg Rifles in 1903, and given dark green uniforms with scarlet facings. Most unusually in the Indian Army, red fezs are reported to have been worn. They were disbanded in 1904 because of insufficient recruits[1] and the mess funds and silver were bequeathed to the newly raised 2/9th Gurkha Rifles[2].
In 1942 Coorgs were again recruited into the newly raised 1st Coorg Battalion. Like the 71st Coorg Rifles, the new battalion had a badge incorporating crossed Coorg knives. In 1946 it was converted to the 37 (Coorg) Anti-Tank Regiment of the Royal Indian Artillery.
