Punjab & World War One

The digital project Punjab & World War One has been created by the UK Pakistan Heritage Association and the university of Greenwich. In 1919 the Punjab regional government created an overview of the 320,000 Punjab soldiers who had served during the First World War. These records, some 26,000 pages, surfaced recently in the holdings of the Lahore Museum. The registers were organized by village. You can navigate an interactive map, use the search fields for village, name and father’s name, or use the advanced search mode with additional fields for district, regiment, rank and caste where you can select from dropdown lists. By clicking on a result you open an overview of the information, and you can go to the scan of the original page in the registers. This project website was launched on November 11, 2021.

In 2016 the UKPHA launched the website Empire, Faith & War on Sikhs and the Great War.
