I have posted most of Indian Army WW2 pictures in another thread, so I don't want to repeat them here. Theaters that they operated were, Burma, North Africa, Italy, Europe and Middle-east. During of of the battles for Monte Cassino was where a soldier, Sepoy Kamal Ram, of 8 Punjab was awarded the Victoris Cross for valour.

Charge 7
 
 
Sepoy Kamal Ram, VC was one of the men in that interview I mentioned to you in your thread. Quite the warrior. His charging the machineguns was extremely well done.

Charge 7,
Many units were raised in 1940/41 and then disbanded after WW2, hence, those soldiers that did not complete their required service elegible for pension are not given thus.
In contrast Naik(cpl) Nand Singh of 1 Sikh, got his VC in Burma. He died during the Indo-Pak 1st Kashmir war in 1948. His family was given all benifits and was decorated with the 'Maha Vir Chakra' the second highest gallantry award for valor in Independent India.
