Amandeep Sahota, Graduate Success - Honouring Indian VC Soldiers in WW1

Visual Communication graduate Amandeep Sahota has an interest in South Asian Soldiers of the British Indian Army who won the Victoria Cross during World War One. Amandeep has turned this specialist interest into an exhibition that is currently on at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, Gas Hall. Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the exhibition features images and artefacts on loan from the National Army Museum and the Imperial War Museum.

The Victoria Cross is Britains's highest award for military gallantry and in total eleven South Asian soldiers, including two Gurkhas have been awarded this medal. Amandeep's exhibition tells their stories.

The exhibition is on until 28 January 2017
