In February this year the University of Dhaka, Bangladesh was the host for a conference and exhibition organized by the Alliance Française de Dhaka focusing on War and Colonies 1914-1918. The exhibition which showed 35 rare photographs of colonial troops in the Great War, (from the collections of the French Ministry of Defence and the German Historical Museum), is now available to view free online. http://warandcolonies.com/#tour
