The Battle of Saragarhi 1897

11/9/2011 to 11/9/2011

ASHT Heritage Shared 2011

Fought in the barren and hostile terrain of the North West frontier on 12th September 1897, the battle of Saragarhi, in which 21 Sikh soldiers valiantly fought and died defending their post against insurmountable odds, is alarmingly neglected in the pages of modern history. In doing so they upheld the very traditions of bravery and sacrifice which have made the Sikh regiment the highest decorated of the Commonwealth.
This illustrated talk will recount the Battle and forms part of ASHT's national campaign ‘Saragarhi: Tradition Never Dies' which was launched in September 2010 to highlight this 'hidden' history.
