Remembered Today:

Chattri Memorial commemoration 2020


Recommended Posts

Good evening, I  have just received this email from the Chattri Memorial group and been asked to share. I know that GWF pals and WFA members sometimes attend the annual memorial service. The Chattri Memorial commemorates the Indian dead of the Great War. Unveiled on 21st February 1921 , it stands on the Downs, near Patcham , just north of Brighton, where Hindu and Sikh soldiers who died in Brighton war hospitals during 1914- 1915 were cremated.  Every year, on the second Sunday in June , a service of remembrance takes place, involving Sikh, Hindu, and Christian religious observances. Sadly, was cancelled this year . 


" As you're aware, due to the Corona-19 pandemic, we are unable to hold the Annual Chattri Service this year. However, to mark this special day and in order to continue to keep the memory alive of the brave Indian and Nepalese soldiers, I laid a wreath to honour their sacrifice and bravery. This act was recorded and will be available from Sunday morning, 14th June, the day the Service would have held. Please go to our website and pay own tribute as you see fit: www.chattri.org "
