New Delhi, July 17
The Poona Horse, a tank regiment of the Army, which took part in the 1948 Hyderabad operation and 1965 and 1971 India-Pakistan wars, has turned 200, an Army official said today.
Within six months of its raising on July 15, 1817, at Sirur, near Poona, the regiment proved its mettle at the Battle of Coregaum and was awarded the first battle honour.
“As part of British Indian Army for 130 years, the regiment fought in 13 countries. Displaying raw and fearless courage and raising its flag at each juncture, the regiment has been conferred with 34 battle honours,” Lt. Gen. Ajai Singh (retd), who has served the regiment, said. — PTI
