Flt Sgt Moj Parkash Puri, KC


On 17 May 1970, a major grass fire broke out around MT Section and Bomb dump. Due to high wind, fire spread inside the Bomb dump and Tarpauline covering High Explosive bombs also caught fire. He, in a cool and systematic manner, fought the fire regardless of his personal safety. The courage, determination and devotion to duty displayed by the SNCO in the face of great personal danger were of a very high order.
