Operation: 1947 Indo Pak Kashmir War
Date of Award: 14 Nov 1948

The fine achievement of 1/5 Gorkha Rifles during the Zojila operations was due entirely to the courage and fine leadership of Lieutenant Colonel A.S. Pathania.

The hardest battle fought by the infantry was in breaking the well-fortified enemy position on Anant feature. The success of this operation was due entirely to Lieutenant Colonel Pathania's personal reconnaissance of enemy defence. Throughout the reconnaissance stage and during the attack, this officer personally led his men. He was a source of great encouragement to his men
