Queen Mary visits a soldier wounded in service during World War One. The soldier had been present at the Durbar in 1911. The Durbar, held in Delhi celebrated the Coronation of King George V and he was crowned King Emperor of India during the ceremony in December 1911 and Queen Mary was his consort.
26,800 men serving in the British and Indian Armies were present at the event. The Durbar also celebrated the change from Calcutta to Delhi as the Indian Capital.
