Lahore, Meerut divisions and Secunderabad cavalry brigade, total of 28500 in Marseilles France in Oct 1914. New York World comments on Indian troop “ what an army, a civilization that was old when Germany was a forest and early Britons stained their naked bodies blue”. 🙏🏽

@GeneralBakshi that's alright, if armies of yesteryear are mercenaries today, what will be today's army called tomorrow? A soldier is trained to follow orders, NOT ask who & what he is fighting for; a fact that some soldiers have forgotten today. Shame on them

Forcing Indians and other Asians & Africans into European conflict is a war crime. Asians and Africans alike has the duly right to ask for fair compensation. Particularly Indians from Britain and Algerians from France. Losses from these two countries were massive!
