That the Parliament recognises the vital role of the Force K6 – Mule Transport Corps – of the British Indo Pak Army in the Second World War; notes that 13 members of the regiment died in Scotland after being evacuated from Dunkirk; further notes that a multi-faith remembrance event was held at Kingussie Cemetery where nine soldiers are buried, on 26 October 2021, and congratulates the charity Colourful Heritage on its role in promoting the service and sacrifice of Force K6 and the British Indo Pak Army so that their contribution is never forgotten.
