Letter extract from a wounded Sikh in England


From a wounded Sikh in England to his uncle in India - original in Gurmukhi, dated 5th March, 1915

"I shall now give you a description of the war. A day will come when England and France and Belgium and Russia and Italy and India and Canada - there are so many kings on the English side - will make an attack on Germany. Before May there will be a charge and the charge will be like a dust-storm. No man will count their numbers so great will be the battle line. Then there will be peace. Have no anxiety for me."
