    Today we had the pleasure of attending the launch of the National Sikh War Trust’s campaign to create a monument in central London.

    The event, held in Parliament, was organised by Labour’s Tan Dhesi and attracting cross-party support, including Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government Sajid Javid – who mentioned the WW1 Sikh Memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum.

    Having led a succesful campaign 2014 to create the UK’s first national, we wish the organisers of a London monument well and hope they find a suitable place in our capital.
