The 11th Indian Cavalry Brigade was a formation of the British Indian Army that served in the Mesopotamian Campaign during World War I. It was formed in September 1917 of three cavalry regiments sent from India and a horse artillery battery from Meerut, India. Its machinegun squadron and other support units were assembled in Mesopotamia. It fought at the Action of Khan Baghdadi and the Battle of Sharqat. It was present at the occupation of Mosul at the end of the campaign, shortly after the armistice.
