We took the opportunity to visit a few memorial sites during remembrance weekend to remember the fallen soldiers of World Wars I & II.

 

During World Wars I and II, 83,055 Sikh soldiers laid down their lives, and 1,09,045 were wounded while fighting as part of British Indian Army.

Having already ridden to Paris on Saturday, we left early Sunday morning to ride over to Neuve Chapelle, a memorial which commemorates over 4,700 soldiers and labourers who lost their lives on the Western Front during WW1. 

Following that, we continued our ride onto Menen Gate, Belgium where we took in the memorial, located in the Eastern side of the town. We were able to spend a good few hours appreciating the war effort by our Sikh soldiers, amongst others.
