This watercolour painting by Clement Lambert shows a view from the Downs looking towards the sea. On the right is a structure consisting of an iron roof suspended on twelve poles imbedded in stone blocks. This is the burning chat where Hindu soldiers who died in the hospitals in Brighton during the First World War were cremated. Today a memorial, called the Chattri, stands on this site.
