From a Sikh, clerk with the 47th Sikhs, serving in France, to his sister - original in Urdu dated 14th March, 1915
"My sister, I write with sorrow that Harnam Singh is a prisoner in the enemy's country... We have heard that six men of our regiment are prisoners in Germany. They are quite well and happy because the Germans deal very lovingly with the men of India and treat them very well. Now he is in no danger of his life. Have no anxiety on his behalf."
