A 10ft bronze statue of a World War One Sikh soldier will soon be installed in a high street to commemorate 100 years since the end of this conflict that ripped the world apart. 

This Lion of the great war monument will be installed later this year in Smethwick, West Midlands will bring huge honour to the South Asian service personnel who fought for Britain. 

 

Everyone is now calling it a striking tribute to the community. 

"These men volunteered to serve and fought to defend the freedoms we enjoy today. said Jatinder Singh, President of the Guru Nanak Gurdwara in Smethwick. "The memorial will ensure that this part is never forgotten," he added.
