Indian Army commemorated 52nd anniversary of the Natu La skirmish at Sherathang War Memorial, near Natu La on 11 September 2019. GOC of the Division laid wreath and paid tribute to honour the martyrs and remembered their sacrifice for the sovereignty and integrity of the nation. The Natu La skirmish was one of the finest hours of the Indian Army wherein our troops stood firm and resolute against the unprovoked belligerence by the adversary. The courage and fortitude displayed by own soldiers showed to the nation and world that Indian Army would never waiver from its solemn duty of protecting our motherland. The “Tri colour” continues to flutter with pride, determination and sacrifice of our soldiers at Natu La and our nation shall always remain grateful to them. This year, celebrations were made even more special by the presence of veterans of 1967 skirmish and their family members. Brigadier NC Gupta, Sena Medal, Lieutenant Colonel Attar Singh and Major KV Chandra Sekhar who had taken part in the operations laid wreaths in memory of their fallen comrades. The ceremony was also graced by the presence of nephew and two grandsons of Late Captain PS Dagar, Vir Chakra, one of the heroes of Natu La skirmish. The veterans interacted with the soldiers and narrated the heroism of troops tasked to protect the motherland which was very inspiring to each and everyone present in the ceremony.
