Viraj Singh started this petition to UK Parliament and

Commemorative Plaque for India’s Forgotten Contribution to The First World War. 

Jamnagar House, located in Staines Surrey was the private country estate of The Maharaja Jam Saheb. During the Great War Ranjitsinhji had kindly donated it to the then King of England. Transferring it into a state of the art hospital for injured and wounded officers who served in the war. 

The Maharaja’s of Kashmir and Patiala had promised to jointly finance it for the duration of the war and as long after as would be required.


By the King's wish, the Hospital was placed under the control of the War Office, who gave it the name of the Prince of Wales Hospital for Officers.

The wards were named after British generals, such as Kitchener and Haig, and were comfortably arranged. 

The Maharaja, served as a British Army Staff Officer during the war (eventually being promoted to Lieutenant Colonel).  He also gave his fleet of cars and lorries to the British Army to help with the war effort. 

Sadly, the hospital has been demolished and it’s site is now occupied by apartments. There is no mention of the great contributions made by the Maharaja. Britain has lost what was a great hospital. To neglect a valuable part of Indian / British history is terrible.

Please sign this petition so we can install a commemorative plaque within Jamnagar Close.
