Falcon, R.W. (Captain, 4th Sikh Infantry, Punjab Frontier Force), Handbook on Sikhs: for the use of Regimental Officers Printed at the Pioneer Press, Allahabad, India, 1896,

Recommended Posts

This is a very interesting work because it gives a clear insight of how colonialists (who had recently 'annexed' Panjab) perceived certain Sikhs. It's basically a manual to guide recruitment into the army published in 1896, so roughly about 50 years after the second anglo-Sikh war. 

This bit is telling:

Sounds like they are describing some 'special needs' type.

Found this about diets in the past:

The diet above had changed very little up to my parents time. Interesting. 

Also note how by going to work without eating breakfast the people were actually doing what we call 'intermittent fasting' today - which is all the rage with people who train.
