Flt Lt Kuldeep Kumar Sharma, Indian Airforce

Flt Lt Kuldeep Kumar Sharma, KC


On 17 May 1970, grass around a Bomb dump caught fire and Flt Lt Sharma tried to control it with the help of a few fire crew. The fire was extensive and the grass as well as the tarpaulines covering the High Explosive Bombs inside the Bomb dump also caught fire. Under such extremely grave circumstances, he kept on fighting the fire with firm determination and a high sense of responsibility. He rendered an extremely valuable service well beyond the call of his duty.
