Awardee: Hony Capt Brajendra Chandra Roy, VrC


Gazette Notification: 56 Pres 63, 22-7-63
Operation: 1962 Leg Horn
Date of Award: 20 Oct 1962

Citation:
Subedar Brajendra Chandra Roy was in charge of a company of Rajput Regiment at a bridge in the Dhola area in NEFA. On 20 October 1962, the Chinese began intensive shelling on this company. Disregarding his personal safety, he went from one platoon position to another encouraging his men and installing confidence in them. He was with No. 11 platoon when at least 300 Chinese attacked it. He ordered the platoon to fight to the last man and the last round. The platoon inflicted heavy casualties but the Chinese closed in on them in large numbers. Seeing that both the men manning the platoon LMG were badly wounded, Subedar Roy dressed their wounds and took up the gun himself, killing at least 10 Chinese. Realising that the position was beyond control, he ordered the survivors to withdraw. The exemplary leadership and indomitable courage displayed by Subedar Roy in this action were in the best traditions of our Army.
