Kut El Amara
Kut El Amara– Just see this Indian Soldier to get a real feel what it might have meant for the Indian Army or the morale of Indian Army when back in 1915, situations went against them.
First Battle of Kut – Malnutrition hits them in face. These were the starved soldiers with a complete fill of confidence and faith over their endurance and very much a far sight that their sacrifice in the long run shall not go unrecorded.
8,000 British Indian soldiers were besieged in Kut , a town 100 miles south of Baghdad.
Malnutrition took toll over the Indians, and the survivors were made to undertake a humiliating ‘March to Aleppo’ for further imprisonment. It is said that only 4,250 of them survived the journey out of 51,836.
Infiniti Communications salutes the spirits & strong determination of the Indian Soldiers who witnessed the worst but emerged stronger after every combat even off burning battle fields.
