During the 1914/18 War, when the Royal Pavilion was used as a military hospital, Hindus and Sikhs who died were taken to a specially built burning ghat and cremated. This photograph shows this burning ghat constructed high up in a remote part of the Downs, about one mile north-east of Patcham village.
