The Indian army had played a great part in Gallipoli and thousands have sacrificed their living while fighting there.

As per the historians, almost 1400 Indians died and more than 300 were wounded at Gallipoli while fighting along with Australian soldiers.  To honour the sacrifices of Indian Army men, a photograph of the Indian Army was added to the war memorial of RSL Blacktown recently.

A photograph of Indian army was put up by Tom Beena- President of RSL Blacktown and John O’ Brien-General Secretary  at the war memorial and it was certainly a very touching moment for the Indians .

Manu Singh, an affiliated member of the RSL of NSW took this initiative and after months of efforts finally the RSL Blacktown agreed to his proposal.

Manu Singh said that while attending the India-Australia Cricket exhibition, the contributions of the Indians soldiers at Gallipoli were highlighted and this made him really emotional and he made up his mind to do something to highlight their sacrifice.

“I spoke about  the sacrifices of the Indian soldiers  to  John O’ Brien -General secretary of Blacktown  and discussed my idea of putting up a photograph  of the Indian  Army  in the RSL war memorial   to which  he agreed   and finally a  photograph of Indian Army was added to the RSL Blacktown”.
