Visitors:- Over 200 visitors ‘hop-on’ the WW1 Exhibition Bus. Most them watched the entire video (http://bit.ly/India1914_WW1_Bus). The local Councillors and other dignitaries also showed appreciation while visiting this mobile exhibition.
‘Post cards’ to the Soldiers were distributed and encouraged to go home and visit the India1914 website as a family to thank and remember the sacrifice of the Indian solders and the entire generation the lived throughout the first great world war.
“I would like to book this mobile Exhibition for our local cricket team.”
“It seems we have not only forgotten to remember the entire generation during the War but are not even aware of the contribution made by the Indian Soldiers during the war.”
