For exceptional courage in battle. He was an example to all ranks.
He was MMG Havildar giving support to two Companies of Gurkhas in
the last attack in MOGAUNG. He moved his Vickers MMG up to the most
advanced Section where he sprayed the houses from which intense
enemy LMG fire was coming only 20 yards ahead. Almost immediately he
was wounded in the shoulder, possibly from a grenade thrown from the
roof of a nearby house. He continued firing. His two assistants were
both wounded and evacuated. He was wounded a second time but still
continued firing until ordered back by Jemedar CHABBI LAL.
Remarks of the Brigade Commander
Recommended for an IMMEDIATE AWARD.
This man's devotion to duty and courage in sticking to his post
turned the tide of the last battle of MOGUANG.
