This regiment’s origins lie in the 2nd Madras Europeans, an East India Company unit formed in 1766 from non-Indian troops. In 1774 this absorbed parts of the 3rd Madras Europeans and was renamed the 2nd Madras European Regiment.
In 1799 the regiment was disbanded, but in 1824 it re-formed as the 2nd Battalion of a new Madras European Regiment. In 1830 the Madras European Regiment became a single-battalion unit. This was renamed the 1st Madras (European) Regiment in 1839 and later became the 102nd Foot in the British Army.
1839 also saw the raising of a new independent 2nd Madras (European) Regiment by Lieutenant-Colonel Archibald Brown-Dyce at Arnee. In 1842 it became a light infantry unit. In 1856 the regiment was sent to Burma, but the following year it returned to India during the Indian Mutiny (1857-59).
In 1858 it joined other East India Company European units in transferring to Crown control. The following year it was renamed the 2nd Madras Light Infantry and in September 1862 it formally joined the British Army as the 105th Regiment of Foot (Madras Light Infantry).
The 105th continued to serve in India until 1872, when it was sent to garrison the port of Aden for two years. The regiment then sailed to England for the first time, landing in 1874. It remained there until 1878, when it was sent first to Guernsey and then to Ireland the following year.
