Lions of the Great War

This Key Stage Three History scheme of work focuses in depth on the contribution of Sikh soldiers from the Indian subcontinent fighting on behalf of the UK between 1914 and 1918. It is designed to follow on from a focus on the First World War, probably in Year Nine and complements the Muslim Tommies resource previously published on this website and also other material produced  to mark the centenary of the First World War.

The scheme of work  has been written by consultant Andrew Wrenn, former LA Humanities Advisor on behalf of the UK Punjab Heritage Association (UKPHA). It is part of a major project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund called "Empire, Faith, War: The Sikhs and World War One".
