Vir Chakra Gazette of India 26 January 1950: 3553 L/Nk. Chand Singh, 1st Patiala (RS) Infantry. MACHHOI Map Ref 5645 in Jummu & Kashmir State on 23rd May 1948. He was in command of the leading section of a Pl patrol to area Pt 5948. At 1120 hours the whole of his platoon came under heavy and accurate MMG and automatic fire from well covered and concealed enemy positions from a hundred yards distance, killing and wounding half of his section straight away. While himself being under intense and close fire running the risk of being killed at any moment continued giving covering fire from an awkwardly exposed position, signalling the remnants of his section to crawl to the hill side. Appreciating the gravity of the situation he collected an LMG and 2-inch mortar bombs (to be used as grenades) from his killed comrades with a view to reorganise his section and contain the enemy.
