The Indian Army in the First World War

6th December 2017 - 8th January 2018

Discover more about the significant contribution made by the Indian Army in the First World War through an Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire lens. 
Men of the 1st Battalion Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry fought as part of the Indian Army in Mesopotamia (Iraq).
British and Indian soldiers fought and died side by side and are commemorated in places well known to us in recent times – including Basra, Kut and Baghdad.

The Exhibition is produced by Soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum (SOFO), and the History Faculty at Oxford University in partnership with Oxford Hindu Temple Community Project and Oxford Muslim Community Initiative.

Funded by the Arts Humanities Research Council (AHRC) through Birmingham WWI Engagement Centre ‘Voices of War and Peace’.
