Undivided India's contribution

'is known but neither extensively written about nor adequately recognised'

Forever India is a joint project between the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and the Indian government.

It is intended to address this neglected aspect of our shared history.

Welcome to Forever India

Presented by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission

More than 160,000 servicemen and women from Undivided India, who sacrificed their lives in the First and the Second World Wars, are commemorated by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.

This website explores the importance of their contribution.

By telling their stories, our belief is that they will always be remembered and honoured.
