Product Details

Battle of Poonch 1971 Operations This event is remembered for the heroic action of Naik Baldev Singh who continued engaging the enemy with his LMG (Light Machine Gun) till he was killed. Thinking the helipad to be the main locality, assaulting troops gave the success signal. To their surprise, it was not so and now they were under continuous artillery fire. They launched repeated attacks from all approaches throughout the day and night of December 4-5, but the troops of 6 SIKH and 8 JAT frustrated all their attempts.
