Rethinking Indian Soldiers and the First World War

National Army Museum free lunchtime lectures.


1.7 million sepoys were mobilised, recruited and shipped overseas to fight for the British Crown. In South Asia and Britain, popular memory of these soldiers has been rekindled as part of the centenary commemorations. While their presence has been acknowledged, their experiences of war in France and the Middle East remain only partially recognised. This talk will reveal some of the everyday realities of Indian soldiers lives in the First World War.
Dr Gajendra Singh is a lecturer in the Department of History at the University of Exeter. His book, 'The Testimonies of Indian Soldiers and Two World Wars: Between Self and Sepoy' was published by Bloomsbury.
