100 years ago Sikh warriors stood side by side with British troops during the First World War and the sacrifice made by those brave people should never be forgotten. That was the premise behind an event in Preston city centre last weekend when the local Sikh community came together for a remembrance parade. It was a colourful and respectful event which celebrated Sikh traditions and it was a privilege to be there to capture a few pictures of the day.
While the Sikhs were armed with traditional swords and daggers, I was armed with my Fuji X-E1 with 55-200mm lens attached and my X-Pro1 with 10-24mm lens but the pictures here are mostly from the 55-200mm lens – a firm favourite of mine.
Here are a few photos from the event.
