Vir Chakra (VrC)
Awardee: Col Dalvir Singh, VrC, VSM

Gazette Notification: No.35 Pres/88, 22-1-88
Operation: Op Savage (Sikkim)
Date of Award: 22 Jan 1988

Lieutenant Colonel Dalvir Singh, Commanding Officer, 10 Para Commando was deployed in Sri Lanka as part of the Indian Peace Keeping Force. He launched his team of para commandos to hit the militants' headquarters in the heart of Jaffna town, for searching the defence, preliminary to final assault. As the militants were very strong, the link-up of our forces with the para commandos was not successful. The officer volunteered to move with columns of infantry and armour to the objective area, to establish contact with the para commandos and, with utter disregard to his own danger, led his team to the objective in the face of heavy militant fire. He extricated the commando team, along with its casualties, fighting his way out of the militants' cordon to safety.

Lieutenant Colonel Dalvir Singh thus displayed conspicuous courage and valiant leadership in the face of strong militant opposition.
