Commemorating the Centenary of Armistice – Cenotaph at Cherrybrook NSW

By: Bhagwat Chauhan.

We were working on some time to create a history, a small team of Ashwani Jain, Sanjeev Bhakri, Ashwani Sharma and Parveen Gupta were working tirelessly to build a cenotaph to recognise servicemen of Indian origin, who made ultimate sacrifice during WW I. We had special contribution of Mr Rajeev Maini (Architect) and Mr Vijay Badhwar (Engineer).

It is a lesser known fact that servicemen of Indian origin were part of Anzac forces. This cenotaph will remember 12 servicemen identified from Anzac Archives and other unidentified sources,  who have fought in Anzac forces. 

 The memorial has been constructed with armistice centenary grant from department of veteran affairs by Hindu council of Australia with support of federal member of Berowra Mr Julian lesser, Hornsby Shire Council, Hornsby RSL

It will be the first memorial of its kind in Australia  to remember the active contributions of Indian community during World War I. It will give an opportunity to Indian Australian now and in the future to connect with Anzac history. 

You are invited to attend and be part of unveiling of the cenotaph dedicated to Anzac Servicemen of Indian origin as part of Armistice centenary commemoration 2018.
