This talk will present the First World War history of the village Dulmial, in present day Pakistan. It will also highlight the important role of Muslim soldiers in the Great War.
Dr Irfan Malik was born in Nottingham, and for the last four years has been researching the First World War contribution of his ancestral village Dulmial, in present day Pakistan.
Almost a century ago Dulmial, a village approximately 100 miles south of Islamabad, was part of British India. This meant that its inhabitants were drawn into the First World War as part of the Allied Forces. A settlement steeped in military history, Dulmial sent 460 of its men to fight in the British Army, and was the largest single participation of any village in Asia.
