The Argus – Hindu and Sikh veterans trek to Chhattri memorial for service

Veterans made their way up the South Downs on Sunday to hold a poignant memorial service.

Samuel Brooke

Hindus and Sikhs walked two kilometres to the Chattri memorial on Steep Bottom hill near Patcham to commemorate the Indian soldiers who died in the First World War.

Brighton and Hove mayor Alex Phillips attended the service.

The Chhattri memorial was built in 1921 on the site of a funeral pyre used to burn the bodies of Hindu and Sikh soldiers who had died fighting for Britain.

Three makeshifts hospitals were set up in Brighton during the war to treat wounded Indian soldiers, including one in the Royal Pavilion.

A memorial service is held at the Chhattri every June.
