    Sepoy Kamal Ram VC
    8th Punjab Regiment

    Sepoy Kamal Ram was awarded the Victoria Cross for his bravery in Italy on 12th May 1944. On that day, his Company had successfully crossed the River Gari but their advance was held up by heavy fire from German machine-gun posts. In response to his Company Commander’s request for a volunteer to silence a specific machine-gun post, Sepoy Ram attacked it and successfully captured the post after killing the crew. He then proceeded to attack and capture two more machine-gun posts and in the process killed several of the enemy and forced the rest to surrender.
