For inspiring leadership and devotion to duty completely regardless
of personal safety
On 28th April at LOINAWK (SJ2364), after a
night battle with the Japanese, 10 men were reported lost and
missing, but possibly still alive. Min Maung immediately volunteered
to return single handed to the now Jap occupied village. This he did
and in spite of active Jap patrols succeeded in collecting five men
and indisputable proof that the remainder had been killed. He was
forced to fight his way out, this he did by engaging the enemy with
one companion whilst the remainder evacuated a wounded man.
This heroic performance was a great inspiration to all ranks and
typical of the G.C.O.'s conduct throughout.
