Indian Independence Medal   21144568 CPL. MOSING GURUNG. G.R. 
Copy recommendation. 65510 Rifleman Mose Gurung, 1/6th Gurkha Rifles.
"For outstanding gallantry and determination in the heavy fighting in the Kyukmyaung Bridgehead on the Irrawaddy. On the night 27/28th January Rfn
Mose Gurung's Battalion was holding an isolated locality in thick jungle, which was subjected to continuous and determined attacks by the Japanese. Rfn Mose Gurung was a member of a forward section post which was subjected to particularly heavy enemy fire. Rfn Mose Gurung was soon wounded but continued to fight on. Gradually the whole of his section were killed or so badly wounded that they were incapable of fighting any longer, but this rifleman taking over the bren gun and throwing grenades managed to beat off all enemy assaults. Casualties were then evacuated, but Rfn Mose Gurung refused to leave his post and having collected all available ammunition from the casualties fought and repelled yet another attack before reinforcements could reach him. The conspicuous determination and courage shown by this Rfn were magnificent and were decisive in preventing the enemy from penetrating into a vital position."
