WW-I Indian heroes to be honoured by U.K.
Indian soldiers who took part in World War I will be honoured by the United Kingdom through a series of events commemorating the 100th anniversary of the war this year.
The British High Commission, along with the United Service Institution of India, has planned a series of events to commemorate Indian involvement in the war which began in 1914. “One million Indian soldiers fought the war and over 70,000 Indian servicemen died. We intend to honour their memory this year with an important series of events,” U.K. High Commissioner to India James Bevan told reporters here today. PTI
