Battle beween the Nabab of Decca's army and forces of the city of Assam

Battle beween the Nabab of Decca's army and forces of the city of Assam
 
 

Battle beween the Nabab of Decca's army and forces of the city of Assam. On the home journey from Batavia the Terschelling ran onto a sandbank off the coast of Bengal in 1661. Some of the crew struggled to safety on an island off the coast and managed to reach dry land a month later. After some wandering they ended up in the army of the Nabab of Decca, who was a field marshall of the Great Mogul. The Nabab went into battle with the king of Assam and the shipwrecked sailors joined the fighting.
