Awardee: Sub Bhim Singh Bohra, VrC

Gazette Notification: 7 Pres 50,21-6-50
Operation: 1948 Polo - Hyderabad
Date of Award: 29 Aug 1948

On the night of 28 August 1948, Subedar Bhim Singh Bohra was in charge of the leading company in an attack on a hill feature in the Poonch area. Our line of advance was under heavy enemy fire but Subedar Bhim Singh, in complete disregard of his personal safety, led the attack and hurled himself at the enemy brandishing his khukri. In this way he continued chasing the enemy until the highest point of the feature, which was strongly held by the enemy, had been captured. He was a great example of valour for his company and his courage, leadership and bravery were outstanding throughout the operation. Later, when going from post to post, encouraging his men to hold on in spite of very heavy enemy shelling, he was hit by a mortar bomb and killed.
