  1. Visit to the Royal Memorial Chapel

    1 Comment
    The Royal Memorial Chapel, Sandhurst, holds tributes to British officers who fought during the Great War and Second World War.

    What’s so unique about the chapel’s memorial is that it pays tribute to the officers who led Sikh soldiers.

    Sikhs fought for Empire for more than 100 years – from after the annexation of the Punjab in 1849 up to the Second World War in 1945.

    They were loyal, brave and maintained their Sikh faith and traditions in battle.

    I had the opportunity recently to visit the chapel and see the memorial to those who fought and died.

    Hopefully, this short film for “Sikhs At War” will give you an idea of the significance of their sacrifice – and the importance of the act of Remembering those who served.
