As part of the many Vaisakhi celebrations that were taking place nationwide, ASHT gave an illustrated talk at Singh Sabha Gurudwara Hounslow on The Anglo Sikh Wars (1845-1849)
The lecture, by MDSCT Trustee and Sikh Historian Sarinjit Bahia, was part of a series of events at the Gurudwara to mark both Vaisakhi and 160 Years of Anglo Sikh History following the end of the Anglo Sikh Wars. These included lectures and displays including ‘From Jawans to Generals', a photographic exhibition on the contribution of Sikh soldiers during the two World Wars.
