Burma – 2nd March 1945, World War 2
Naik Fazal Din was leading his section in an attack on a heavily fortified Japanese bunker position. Under heavy fire from machine guns and grenades, Fazal Din used his grenades on one of the bunkers, destroying it.
Fazal Din and the soldiers with him were suddenly ambushed by Japanese officers with swords. Fazal Din was mortally hurt by a stab wound through the chest, but managed to kill his attacker, and then inspire his troops to overwhelm the base. Fazal Din managed to submit a report from platoon headquarters, before finally succumbing to his fatal injuries.
