I am just reading about this chap in The Tiger Kills. During Operation Battleaxe he performed a feat of gallantry and wondered if he recieved a medal for it. Here's what it says. Sepoy Babu Desai of the Mahrattas , only eighteen years old , took command of his section when it's commander was wounded. When the company was held up, he picked up his Bren gun , rushed across the open under heavy fire, and brought the gun into action from the flank, enabling the company to move on again. Then he was wounded in the leg and his platoon commander told him to go back to the Regimental Aid Post to have the wound dressed. But Babu Desai had other views. He rushed the gun that wounded him , killing the gunner and making the others run. Then his leg gave way under him , but still he had to be forcibly placed on a stretcher before he would even consider his own troubles. 4th Indian Division history doesn't mention this episode & he is not listed by name in the Gallantry Awards section, I wondered if he is one of the 14 un-named men of his regiment who were awarded the IDSM - Indian Distinguished Service Medal??
