The British Commonwealth of Nations made a significant contribution to the war effort, accounting for roughly 3.5 million of the 8.5 million troops engaged in battle across the globe during World War II.
These teaching and learning resources build on Robert Peal’s fantastic World War II resources, providing diversity in context through a comprehensive look at the contributions of Sikh infantrymen, East African troops in Burma, Jamaican pilots in the RAF, and other Commonwealth soldiers.
By continuing to share these stories, we can ensure that the sacrifices of these brave service personnel—many of whom made the ultimate sacrifice—are remembered and respected as heroes who helped build the Britain we live in today.Calvin Robinson
