Vir Chakra (VrC)
Awardee: L/Nk Budh Singh, VrC

Gazette Notification: 50 Pres/52, 3-7-52
Operation: Op Savage (Sikkim)
Date of Award: 05 Nov 1951

During the period 4-5 November 1951, the 1st BN of the King's Own Scottish Borderers suffered several casualties due to a heavy attack at Maryangsan (Korea) and many of the wounded needed immediate evacuation for medical attention.

L/Nk Budh Singh, disregarding his own safety, evacuated the casualties to the rear area by his stretcher jeep from the frontline over a road half a mile of which was open terrain subjected to constant heavy shell fire. He voluntarily continued driving through the shell fire until the evacuation of all casualties was completed. 

This NCO's gallant action was very creditable, both to him and to the military medical service.
