The camp at Dagshai was to have been opened for parolees on 27 March 1902 but because of an outbreak of plague in the town of Umballa this was delayed until the 3rd of April when forty-three men arrived from Sialkot and eighty-one from Umballa. On the 16th of the same month a further batch of 205 men arrived from Umballa making a total of 329 for the camp. On 29 August 1902 the first 199 men left Dagshai and on the 25th of October 1902 the remaining 299 POWs were transferred to Umballa and the camp at Dagshai closed.
