Customer Review

on 6 May 2012
This is a very thin book published by Brighton Books in 1997 which only had a small run, of a few thousand but it is a fantastic little read of a little known subject, that of the Indian soldiers who stayed in Brighton during World War I.

Dr Brighton tells the story of how the Royal Pavilion in Brighton was turned into a military hospital for wounded Indian soldiers fresh from the Western Front, 1914/1916. There are many black and white photos of Brighton during this time, most depicting the recuperation of the soldiers and the men and women who looked after them during these two years.

Short and concise, this book is a little gem and it is a real shame that it is out of print.

Worth reading if you can get your hands on a copy.
