Mahinder Singh Pujji was a distinguished Royal Air Force fighter pilot and one of the first indian Sikh pilots to volunteer with the RAF during the second world war. A true hero.The statue is MAGNIFICENT.The statue is situated near the town pier.You cannot miss it when you drive along the one way system.

We visit this spot on every stop in Kent,its a great area for me to photograph ships on the Thames.
We only spotted the statue on our most reasent visit, stopped to have a good look,very poinent, and a fitting tribute to a hero of the war, need to have more tributes to more hero's from our Commonwealth allies

The Statue is in St Andrews Gardens a short walk from the town pier. The statue was erected in 2014 and commemorates the life of Squadron Leader Mahinder Singh Pujji who was a distinguished Royal Air Force fighter pilot and one of the first Indian Sikh pilots to volunteer with the Royal Air Force during the Second World War. He lived and died aged 92 in Gravesend.The statue is situated in a nice garden area well worth a visit.
