Dear Friends of the Chattri
On behalf of the Chattri Memorial Group, I should like to invite you to a Memorial Service, in remembrance of the Indian Soldiers who were cremated in Brighton during the First World War. They were brought over from the Western Front and hospitalised in Brighton to recover from their wounds.
The Service will take place on 14th June 2015 at 2.30 pm. at the Chattri, Patcham, Standen Lane, Brighton, BN1 8ZB. Prayers and the laying of the wreaths should last for approximately half an hour. Cars are able to drive right up to the Chattri on this day. Following the Ceremony, refreshments will be served at Dorothy Stringer School, Loder Road, BN1 6PZ. An exhibition which traces the role of the soldiers from India to the Western Front will be on display at the school.
I shall be deeply honoured to have your presence at the Chattri and I hope you be able to attend with your family and friends
With best wishes
Chairman Chattri Memorial Group
