Peace Celebrations, Indian Troops Marching Down Whitehall, 1919.

Oil on canvas by Dora Meeson, 1919

Although the First World War officially ended on 11 November 1918, the Treaty of Versailles was not signed until June 1919. In Britain, the conclusion of hostilities was celebrated on Saturday 19 July, with a Victory Parade in London as the main event. A camp for troops taking part in the Parade was set up in Kensington Gardens, while thousands of civilians flocked to the capital for the festivities. Nearly 15,000 servicemen took part in the Parade, led by Allied leaders such as Haig, Foch and Pershing. Among the troops were Commonwealth forces such as the Indian Contingent seen here.
