Loyal Allies, Proud Britons

A photographic exhibition of the contribution of Sikh Soldiers during the two World Wars

As seen at the Warwickshire Museum in 2008 Jawans to Generals returns to Royal Leamington Spa.

In the two world wars, Sikh soldiers served from the trenches of the Western front to the jungles of Burma. More than 83,000 were killed and over 100,000 were wounded. They were awarded countless medals for gallantry, including several Victoria Crosses.

From Jawans to Generals tells the story of the Sikh contribution to the British Army through a fascinating selection of historic photographs, many dating back to the Victorian period, and celebrates the proud history of the Anglo Sikh relationship.

Paul Sheehan "A fine tribute to such brave soldiers. Britain & the Sikhs will always be proud friends".

G Sahota "An excellent exhibition that captures a brief history of the Sikhs commitment to freedom for all in the name of peace"
