Cairo, Oct 22:  To commemorate the sacrifices and heroism of Indian soldiers in the two battles of El Alamein, a memorial service was organised by the Indian embassy in Cairo at the Indian Memorial Saturday.




Navdeep Suri, India's ambassador to Egypt, and a number of senior diplomats and defence officials of friendly countries placed wreaths at the memorial on this occasion, an embassy press release said.

The simple but solemn ceremony was a part of the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of El Alamein being celebrated at El Alamein and memorialised the selfless service of the courageous Indian soldiers, thousands of kilometres from their motherland.

On this occasion, Ambassador Suri said the stellar role of the Indian soldiers in El Alamein was recognised by German Field Marshal Rommel himself.
