Gazette Notification: 7 Pres 50,21-6-50
Operation: 1948 Polo - Hyderabad
Date of Award: 06 Feb 1948

On 6 February 1948, the enemy in overwhelming numbers attacked one of our key positions in Naushera in J&K. Major Brijpal Singh, who was in charge of a picquet with only two platoons under him, repulsed the attacks several times inflicting heavy casualties on the enemy.

Regardless of his personal safety, Major Brijpal Singh kept on inspiring his men to fight the enemy to the last man, which broke the enemy morale, and eventually the enemy had to retreat leaving many casualties behind.
