JALANDHAR To commemorate the selfless dedication to duty by the Indian Army’s gallant Infantrymen, Vajra Corps celebrated the 74th Infantry Day with pride and honour.  Lieutenant General Sanjeev Sharma, General Officer Commanding Vajra Corps, laid a wreath at ‘Vajra Shaurya Sthal’ in Jalandhar Cantt in the honour of brave martyrs who have made supreme sacrifice for the nation.

   Indian Army celebrates 27th October each year as Infantry Day to commemorate the first engagement with armed adversary post-independence.   In response to the threat posed to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of our nation, on this day in 1947, the leading elements of the Indian Army air landed at Srinagar and gallantly fought the Pakistani tribesmen led by Pakistan Army.

  This bold action by the Indian Army and indomitable courage displayed by the Infantrymen reversed the tide of events and thwarted the adversary’s nefarious designs.
