Forever India

09 November 2011

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission is pleased to announce that our new education microsite - Forever India - has gone live at http://www.cwgc.org/foreverindia/

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 Commission.

Undivided India's contribution during the two world wars 'is known but neither extensively written about nor adequately recognised'.

Forever India is a joint project between the Commission and the Indian government. It is intended to address this neglected aspect of our shared history. Over time the site will grow as more stories and content are developed.
