India lost about 8500 Indian soldiers in World War I in Flanders and adjoining regions of Belgium and France during World War I. To commemorate the sacrifice of these soldiers an Indian Memorial was constructed in 2002 on the lawns of the ‘Menin Gate Memorial’. In 2011 this Memorial has been replaced with a newer one. A ceremony was held on 12th March 2011 in Ypres to unveil this new Memorial.
