Saragarhi Memorial

Year 13 students from HGS were invited to attend the Saragarhi Memorial at the National Arboretum on Tuesday 12th September.

The memorial commemorated the Battle of Saragarhi in India in 1897 when 21 Sikh soldiers fell after fighting against ten thousand Pathans.

The memorial ceremony coincided with the launch of a new documentary about Saragarhi made by ex HGS student Jay Singh Sohal.

Our students also heard presentations from the British Army Sikh Association, and were wonderfully received by the organisers of the memorial.
