Dear Veterans,

The Navy is in the process of publishing a book on Naval Heroes. It is proposed that along with the story of heroism, a photograph and a message / anecdote from the awardee (if surviving) or a family member may also be included so as to connect with the reader. It is requested that all Chakra series award winners forward a photograph and a message / anecdote to PDPS at IHQ MOD(Navy), Room No 202, C Wing, Sena Bhawan, New Delhi 110 010 or on email

    Sir,it is indeed a noble thought though considerable time has lapsed.would like to put across few facts & suggestions for ur consideration.
    a)Gallantry Awards existed in 1970s are PVC,MVC,VrC,NM(G),M-in-Despatches,AAshok Chakra.subsequently KC,SC,have been incorporated.In late 1980s few peace time operations of war magnitude took place like Op Pawan,Op Swan etc. Therefore new Awards of equivalent have been introduced .They r SYSM,UYSM,YSM.
    Gallantry awards which r recognized by GOI,and constitution need same place in ur publication.
    NM(G),M-in-D awadees and ysm series may please be considered to instill pride and spirit in our service personnel. Looking forward for a positive vision and forethought.Regards.
