    I think Lt Col AB Guha attained Martyrdom on December 5th, 1971 in a Pakistani Air Raid somewhere near Pallanwala ( J and K) East of River Munawar Tawi, while he was in the midst of a briefing under a tree. When I was in an Artillery Unit under 10 Division in Jaurian during 1985 to 1990, every year on December 5th there used to be a Memorial Service organised by 10 Div and the Lady Wife of Lt Col AB Guha used to attend. I have attended two or three such memorial services. Further inputs may be available from HQ 10 Inf Div or Veterans who were in the thick of war in Chhamb in 1971/ who served in the Area. 12 Fd Regt was assigned Fire Power to 28 Inf Bde, 191 Inf Bde and 68 Inf Bde with a Bty each.

    My father Lt Col.AB Guha SM was CO 12 Fd Regt and fought the Indo Pak war of 1971. Being a 15 year old school student, my memories of the war were idealistic . My Dad was my hero and and I knew he would come back victorious. Hero he became, but sacrificed his life for the cause. What I have heard from regiment officers was he was going to retrieve some guns which to an Arty officer is Izzat o Iqbal. He inspired all his men and officers and even till date those who worked under him say ‘It was an honour to have worked under him.

    My name is Paul Madura . I was an emergency commissioned officer in the Indian army , in the 4 Field Regiment. Maj Guha was transferred to 4 field regiment in , I think 1965 or 66 ,while we were stationed at Jalpaiguri ,then West Bengal. We moved to Jhansi . Maj Guha was my Battery commander of the 92 Field Battery of the regiment. He was promoted to Col of 12 Fd Regiment . I had a lot of respect for him because he was technically well versed & we had a good relationship.I had heard that he was killed during the war with Pakistan. It is only today that I started to look for him did I find out about him. As a matter of fact his wife who was a doctor in the army delivered my son at the Jhansi Military Hospital. May his soul rest in peace.
