An exhibition revealing the untold story of how Sikhs played such a disproportionately large role in the 'war to end all wars' will be displayed at the Asian Centre in Wood Green. ‘Empire, Faith & War: The Sikhs and World War One' is an exhibition developed by the UK Punjab Heritage Association.
Empire, Faith and War
19 – 23 October (closed 22 October), 11 – 5pm
Asian Centre, 8 Caxton Road, London, N22 6TB
Free entry - all welcome!
The display tells the forgotten story of India's massive contribution in terms of men, money and materials and shows how Indian troops, including Sikhs, arrived 100 years ago to help save the Western Front, and then went on to fight in many of the Great War's forgotten campaigns.
The exhibition will be on display in the Upstairs Hall of the Asian Centre (not wheelchair accessible). Visitors are welcome to stay for lunch at the Asian Centre, where freshly cooked veg and non-veg options are available every week day between 12.30 and 2. Senior citizens are entitled to a reduced ticket price.
