Ceremony to remember Sikh soldiers

The bravery of a group of Sikh soldiers has been honoured in a special ceremony in the Midlands.

21 men died defending a British army post from 10,000 Afghan tribesmen during the battle of Saragarhi in 1897.

Although the battle is little-known, it's considered by some military historians to be one of history's great last-stands.
