Sepoy (pronounced /ˈsiːpɔɪ/) (from Persian سپاهی Sipâhi meaning "soldier") was formerly the designation given to an Indian soldier in the service of a European colonial power. In the modern Indian Army, Pakistan Army and Bangladesh Army it remains in use for the rank of private soldiers. In its most common application Sepoy was the term used in the British Indian Army for an infantry private (a cavalry trooper was a Sowar). There was widespread mutiny amongst the sepoys of the Bengal Army in the Indian Rebellion of 1857.
