Param Vir Chakra (Posthumous) 06 Feb. 1948
Naik Jadunath Singh
Naik Jadunath Singh of 1 RAJPUT was a post commander at Tain Dhar near Naushera in Jammu & Kashmir. On 6 February 1948, enemy forces attacked his post in successive waves. He and his section were able to ward off three successive attacks by the enemy. By the end of third wave, of the 27 men at the post, 24 men were killed or severely wounded. Despite being grievously injured, armed with a Sten Gun, he single-handedly charged with such courage as to cause the attackers to withdraw. With raw courage and utter disregard to his personal safety, he attacked the enemy forces and met his gallant death during the charge. For this act of highest gallantry and supreme sacrifice he was awarded the Param Vir Chakra (Posthumous).
