Citation:
On 15 December 1948 on Punjab Hill, Sepoy Bhagat Ram was observing from his bunker enemy movements on the ridge opposite his position. His bunker was blown to pieces after having received four direct hits, but this did not keep Sepoy Bhagat Ram from carrying out the duties allotted to him. Picking up his Bren gun he walked in full view of the enemy to a slit trench some five yards away where he installed himself as sentry and continued with his duties. It was not long after this that two enemy shells hit his trench and blew a way the barrel of his Bren gun. This additional mishap also tailed to daunt the courage of this gallant little Dogra sepoy Once again he left his trench, walked over his demolished bunker, brought back the spare barrel, fixed it to his gun and carried on his observation undismayed. His devotion to duty great courage and gallantry in the face of such a terrific onslaught were exemplary.
