   CHATTRI INDIAN WAR MEMORIAL
 
The Chattri on the Downs above Patcham marks the site of the cremation place for Hindu and Sikh soldiers who died of their wounds at the Royal Pavilion Hospital during World War One.
It was unveiled in 1921 by the Prince of Wales. Each year at 3.00pm on the fourth Sunday in June, the Patcham Branch of The Royal British Legion organises a Pilgrimage to the Chattri.
The Pilgrimage is attended by representatives from the Indian High Commission, and ex-officers and men of the Indian Army.
Details can be obtained by ringing Brighton and Hove City Council on (01273 290000)
