Lucknow

The history of Lucknow (80.92E 26.849N) can be traced back at least to the 13th century. It endured a 12-week siege in 1857, during the Sepoy Mutiny, but was recaptured by the British in 1858. In 1941, it was a major rail center and a market for agricultural and light industrial goods, with a population in 1941 of about 500,000 persons.

99 Indian Brigade was activated here in the spring of 1941, and was probably still stationed here when war broke out in the Pacific.
