The following are photographs from a feature in the Daily Mirror. The feature in full, in large size, is at this link of our website.

The feature is headed: The Breaking of the Fast: Wounded Indians at Moslem Festival. The text under these photographs reads as follows:

“Arabs, Egyptians, Persians and British assembled at the mosque, Woking, yesterday for Eid-ul-Fitr, the great Moslem festival of the breaking of the fast. There were also present fifty wounded Indian soldiers, who travelled up from Brighton, and who exchanged their khaki uniforms for white clothing. Everyone wore national dress, the effect being exceedingly picturesque. The mosque was not large enough to accommodate all the people, so the service was held on the lawn. — Daily Mirror photographs.”
