The War Memorial is situated at Raniket in the Kumaon region of of the state Uttarakhand. The gate is called Somnath Dwar after Major Somnath Sharma who valiantly fought the Battle of Badgam in October 1947. “His last message to Brigade HQ, received a few moments before he was killed was, “The enemy are only 50 yards from us. We are heavily outnumbered. We are under devastating fire. I shall not withdraw an inch but will fight to our last man and our last round.” His answer is now part of the Army lore”.
