Imphal, May 5: Men from Manipur who worked in the labour corps in WW1 shall be featured in an exhibition in Alfrod Manor House Museum, Alford Lincolnshire, UK, informed Sarah Teesdale Trustee of Alford Manor House Museum, Alford Lincolnshire.

“I am working on our next installation of a WW1 commemorative exhibition which will open in 2017. I plan to feature Manipur in the 2017 installation,” Sarah said in a release.

Further she also informed that John Comyn Higgins – political agent in Manipur – was from Alford and the family was very closely tied to the Manor House. Higgins was instrumental in suppressing a rebellion of the Kuki tribes which was connected to the use of their men in the Labour Corps. To date my research has been limited to reading background information on Manipur to provide some context for my research into Higgins. I shall be collecting information from Yumnam Rajeshwor Singh of Manipur on the Manipur side of the story and datas, informed the researcher on WW1.
