The regiment was raised by General James Marsh for service in India due to fears that war with France was imminent as the 77th (Hindoostan) Regiment of Foot in October 1787. In accordance with the Declaratory Act 1788 the cost of raising the regiment was recharged to the British East India Company on the basis that the act required that expenses "should be defrayed out of the revenues" arising there. First assembled in Dover in early 1788, the regiment arrived in India in August 1788, and saw action at the Siege of Seringapatam in February 1792 in the Third Anglo-Mysore War and the capture of the Dutch settlements in Ceylon in 1795. It also saw action at the Battle of Seedaseer in March 1799 and formed part of the storming part at the Siege of Seringapatam in April 1799 during the Fourth Anglo-Mysore War. The regiment also took part in skirmishes at Panjalamcoorchy in March 1801 and Caliarcoil in October 1801 during the Polygar Wars. The regiment then embarked for England in February 1807.

The regiment was given a county designation, becoming the 77th (East Middlesex) Regiment of Foot in 1807. It took part in the disastrous Walcheren Campaign in autumn 1809 and, having been granted permission to bear the plumes and motto of the Prince of Wales as a badge in commemoration of twenty years service in India in February 1810, it embarked for Spain in June 1811 for service in the Peninsular War. It saw action at the Battle of El Bodón in September 1811, the Siege of Ciudad Rodrigo in January 1812 and the Siege of Badajoz in March 1812. The regiment then fought at the Battle of Bayonne in April 1814 before returning home in August 1814.
