Indian troops made up the largest of the contingent among the Commonwealth nations. Over a million Indian heroes played a pivotal role during the First World War. During the Second World War, the Indian armed forces fought on three continents, becoming the largest volunteer army of 2.5 million by 1945. Lest we forget."
