Call to Action

The National Army Museum, Chelsea are hosting a poll to help determine Britian’s Greatest Battle. 20 worthy engagements including a battle fought with the Sikhs at Aliwal are up in competition for your votes!

Your vote will help decide the top five battles represented at the museums all-day speaker event. On the day, five distinguished guests will battle out in discussion what makes each of these five conflicts a worthy winner. This day of debate will finally determine which is Britain’s Greatest Battle.

Fought on 28 January 1846 during the First Sikh War (1845-46), a British-Indian force led by Sir Henry Smith battled against the Sikh army of Ranjodh Singh Majithia, in a battle that is regarded as the turning point of the First Anglo-Sikh War.

The Sikh army was probably the most formidable opponent the British faced on the sub-continent. So get your votes for our campaign to victory to get Aliwal battled-out in a national museum!

Currently Aliwal sits in position 20 with only 25 votes, but with your campainging spirit we can help Aliwal get within the top five!
