Comrades of WW1
One such person is Marika Pirie from Canada, who shared with us this rare postcard showing a British and Indian soldier.
The individual on the right is a Sikh, the beard and turban certainly show this to be the case. But the chakkar on the turban seems more crescent shaped that circular – highly likely a mistake on the part of the artist.
