Ram Swarup Singh
Birth: Apr. 12, 1919
Death: Oct. 25, 1944

World War II Victoria Cross Medal Recipient. He served as a Subadar in the 1st Punjab Regiment, Indian Army. At the Tiddim area, Burma, October 25, 1944, two platoons were ordered to attack a strong Japanese position. The platoon commanded by Subadar Singh attained its objective and although the Subadar Singu was wounded in both legs he insisted on carrying on. Later, the enemy's counter-attack was halted by Subadar Singh's dashing counter charge in which he killed four of the enemy himself. He was again wounded, but continued to lead his men, killing two more of the enemy, until he was mortally wounded. For meritorious service, he was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross Medal. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
