A panel discussion on the Anglo-Sikh Wars and the Battle of Chillianwallah during the mid-19th century.
Author Amarpal Singh Sidhu discusses the events that led to the wars, and the annexation of the Kingdom of Lahore in Punjab, India, while Rav Singh, a London-based guide and explorer, reveals the connections between Chelsea and the Sikh Wars.
Join us for what promises to be an informative and revealing discussion, chaired by Kate Ainley-Marr of the Royal Hospital Chelsea.
Amarpal Singh Sidhu was born in the Punjab, India. He spent over 20 years working in the software industry before turning to his real interest in military history and the exploration and analysis of battlefields.
His first book, The First Anglo-Sikh War, was well received. The sequel, The Second Anglo-Sikh War, was released in 2016. His recent work explores the Indian Mutiny of 1857 and is focused on events in the Punjab associated with The Siege of Delhi.
Amarpal has appeared and collaborated on history programmes for several TV channels.
Rav Singh is the founder of A Little History of the Sikhs, a community initiative that works to translate research in modern-day Sikh history and heritage into walking tours in London, day trips in the South-East of England and study visits to destinations in the UK and across Western Europe.
Since 2014, Rav has been working with the team at the Royal Hospital Chelsea and the National Army Museum, to develop and conduct tours that bring alive the history of the Anglo-Sikh Wars through the streets of Chelsea.
