Operation: 1948 Polo - Hyderabad
Date of Award: 06 Feb 1948

On 6 February 1948, at Tain Dhar near Naushera, Sepoy Budh Ram was No. 2 of the 2-in mortar on a picquet, which was attacked by over 2000 strong enemy. The mortar ammunition had run short due to the momentum of the battle. Sepoy Budh Ram immediately ran down to the ammunition dump and brought back carriers of ammunition despite heavy enemy fire. As the ammunition demand was heavy, he went down again to fetch some more but this time he was wounded. By this time the platoon had suffered heavy casualties and there was no other man available to replenish the ammunition. He went down again on his own initiative to fetch some more ammunition. Although profusely bleeding, he reached the platoon headquarters where he collapsed and died.

By his personal courage, self-sacrifice and devotion to duty he set and example which was worthy of the highest praise.
