On 15th August 2020 Mirfield Town Council along with their partners in the Mirfield Royal British Legion held a service to mark the 75th Anniversary of Victory over Japan(VJ) Day when World War Two was brought to a close.

The event was attended on behalf of SSO by President (Kalvinder Bhullar) and Treasurer (Jagjit Sodhi) which took place at  Ings Grove park, in Mirfield Town Centre where social distancing was observed. At the Cenotaph wreaths were laid as we remembered those who at the time felt they were the forgotten Army.

The Sikh Soldier Organisation remembers all the Sikh, British, Allied and Commonwealth soldiers including Prisoners of War who died in Japanese captivity. We salute our martys who laid their lives for us.
