Army formation celebrates golden jubilee

                     The Chushul Warrior Brigade, an army formation which has been the sentinel of eastern Ladakh since its raising in 1960, today celebrated its golden jubilee with wreath ceremonies at memorials commemorating the gallant martyrs of the 1962 Sino-India war.

             "Wreath laying ceremonies at all the memorials commemorating the gallant martyrs of 1962 operations were organised," a defence spokesman said.

            He said General Officer Commanding of Ladakh-based Fire and Fury Corps Lt Gen S K Singh paid homage to the martyrs.

          Among those present at the ceremonies was Narpat Singh, son of Maj Shaitan Singh, who was awarded Param Vir Chakra posthumously.
