MUSLIMS HAVE BEEN AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE British ARMED FORCES SINCE WW1
Serving Muslim personnel have made a huge contribution to the British armed forces over the last 100 years.
Thousands of Muslim soldiers from the Indian Army made a vital contribution to world war one, fighting alongside the allied forces. In world war two the actions and bravery of Muslim personnel on the front line and in the merchant navy had a huge influence on the victorious outcome in 1945.
To this day, Muslims are still an integral part of the British armed forces serving alongside their comrades in operations around the world.
