Sikhs in Britain have condemned the brutal murder of a soldier by Islamic fanatics in Woolwich last week. Sikhs have served in the British armed forces for 150 years and have fought in their turbans during the First and Second World Wars. There are Sikhs serving as the Queens Guard and a guard outside Buckingham Palace. Many people's grandparents or great-grandparents fought in the First and Second World Wars.
The photos below show the Sikh community paying their respects to Lee Rigby and condemning the horrific crime:
