Lecture: Sikhs in World War 1




" Britain didn't fight the Word Wars-the British Empire did"


Newarke Houses Museum

March 1st 2018

Thanks to Metro Boulot Dodo Leicester for hosting the lecture today. I gave a introduction to Sikhism, The Sikh Empire, the Anglo Sikh Wars, leading to Sikh employment into the British Indian Army.

I discussed how different regiments were formed, and how Sikhs contributed to the war effort from Ypres through to Mesopotamia, and Palestine.

Looking forward to the Virtual Reality film on Indian Soldiers in the Great War.
