LAL SINGH (1798-1875), of the village of Talvandi in Gurdaspur district, saw, like his father Dal Singh, a good deal of service under Maharaja Ranjit Singh. He fought in the Multan and Kashmir campaigns of 1818-19. He also fought at the famous battle of Jamrud in April 1837, where his nephew died fighting. Lal Singh was appointed in 1848 to cooperate with the addlati or chief justice of the Majha region, holding the command of fifty horse. Lal Singh held half of Talvandi in proprietary rights. He died in 1875.
