"Our soldiers who fought in foreign lands in the Great War, have won the admiration of the world for dedication, loyalty, courage and sacrifice. I salute them," the Prime Minister wrote in the visitor's book at the memorial.

He also met youth of Indian origin who had gathered outside the memorial at Neuve Chapelle. "Shaheedon Amar Raho," he urged the youth to chant with him.
