    During the First World War (1914-18) over one and a half million Indian army soldiers saw active service alongside British troops. Twelve thousand Indian soldiers who were wounded on the Western Front were hospitalised at sites around Brighton. These included York Place School, the Dome, the Corn Exchange and the Royal Pavilion.

    The fifty-three Hindu and Sikh soldiers who died in Brighton were taken to a peaceful resting place on the Sussex Downs near Patcham for cremation, after which their ashes were scattered in the sea, in accordance with their religious rites.

    The Muslim brothers in arms, totalling nineteen, were buried in a purpose built burial ground near to the Shah Jehan Mosque in Woking. Built in 1889, the mosque is the oldest of its kind in north-west Europe.

    Just a correction for the description of this video.
    This video is showing Hadrat Mirza Bashir ud din Mahmood who is Khalifatul Massih Sani (II) of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. The other people accompanying his holiness are not Sikhs but are his companions; Ahmadi muslims. They were shown saying their prayers (Salat)
    His Holiness visited England to attend Wembley’s Conference of Living Religions 1924 invited by Mr. William Loftus Hare.’s_Conference_of_Living_Religions_1924
