A Service of Remembrance will be held in Brecon this weekend to remember the fallen soldiers of the Indian Army in World War II.

The service will take place at Brecon Cemetery on Sunday (October 29) beginning at 11am.

Interred at Brecon Cemetery are the Commonwealth War Graves of eight Muslim soldiers from the Royal Indian Army Service Corps who died in Wales during World War II.

The Welsh Guards Pilgrims have organised a Service of Remembrance to ensure that the service and selfless sacrifice of these soldiers to the Commonwealth are never forgotten.

The service is a way of highlighting the diverse contributions that were made during WWII to raise awareness and ensure that the memories of those diverse communities who served our country endure across generations for years to come.

The Muslim Council for Wales will hold a private religious service for the soldiers at the graveside at 10.30am.

Dar ul-Israh Mosque (Cardiff) as part of the Muslim Council for Wales has authorised the Janazah prayer in absentia to be read which will be followed by the main Remembrance Service at 11am. The service will be attended by representatives from the Muslim Council for Wales, the wider Muslim community, dignitaries, veterans, the Armed Forces and others.

The names of the fallen will be read out and wreaths laid as part of the commemoration.
