However, it was anachronistic to show the Sikh and the black soldiers serving with whites. In reality, they were in segregated units.
Yea most definitely,

My Grandfather was in a Sikh unit during WWI and he did earn the "right" to be a British Subject....but he emigrated to the US in 1928. the story is He died from the effects of Mustard Gas in 1938 just before my dad was born. so the stories are lost.
