The Commonwealth soldiers' sacrifice made an enormous difference to the outcome of the first world war. Thousands came from India and what is now Pakistan and Bangladesh. Britain owes a great debt to these unsung heroes.

At the event, Baroness Sayeeda Warsi gave a speech honoring the Asian, African and Muslim soldiers who fought with the British Army during the First World War.
