    Capt. J. Singh-Sohal delivered a guest lecture at the prestigious United Services Institute (USI) of India’s Centre for Armed Forces Historical Studies about the Battle of Saragarhi.

    The talk narrated the true story of the battle, as well as showcased for the first time moving footage of the modern site of the ruins itself in tribal Pakistan. The footage was gathered as part of research efforts during the production of the film “Saragarhi: The True Story”.

    The film, to be released to mark the 120th anniversary of the battle on 12th September 2017, tells the story of how 21 Sikhs fought to the last man against 10,000 enemy tribesmen to defend a small frontier outpost in 1897.

    After the presentation, Jay presented the United Services Institute with a special ‘Subedar’ bust.

    The footage of the presentation will be available via this website shortly.
