The Indian Council have received a request to send a supply of copies of the Granth Sahib or Sikh Scriptures for the use of the sick and wounded Sikh soldiers in hospital in Europe.

His Honour Sir Michael O’Dwyer, Lieutenant Governor of the Punjab Centre of the Association, has presented 500 copies of the sacred writing to the Indian Council, and the Indian Council has ordered a further supply of copies from the printers.

This additional effort on behalf of the Indian Council to provide for the spiritual as well as the physical well-being of our gallant Sikh soldiers will no doubt be greatly appreciated by the Sikh community in India generally as well as by the gallant Sikhs who are covering themselves with glory on the battlefields of Europe and elsewhere. – Malaya Tribune, 10 March 1915
