The Memorial Gates is a war memorial located at the Hyde Park Corner end of Constitution Hill in London. Also known as the Commonwealth Memorial Gates, they were erected in memory of the five million volunteers from the Indian sub-continent, Africa and the Caribbean who fought with Britain in the two World Wars.
They commemorate the armed forces of the British Empire from five regions of the Indian subcontinent (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka), as well as Africa and the Caribbean, who served for Britain in the First and Second World Wars.
This memorial is very close to Dinesh, as his father served in the Royal Navy and his father in law served in the British Indian Army during World War II. His father in law General O P Malhotra went on to become Chief of the Armed Forces of India.
