    Sepoy Charan Dass was a part of the A Company of the 23 Battalion of the Punjab Regiment which fought in the epic battle of Longewala. Sepoy Charan Dass was a part of a Mortar squad and bravely fired rounds at Pakistani Type 59 Main Battle Tanks from the 22 Cavalry of the 18 Infantry Brigade under Major General M.A Mustafa. Sepoy Charan Dass inflicted heavy casualties upon the Pakistani forces by stepping out of his trench and firing his mortar in the open with disregard for his personal safety. Pakistani MMG and LMG fire was not enough to stop him and eventualy a Pakistani Type 59 tank fired a 100mm round at his position. he made the Supreme sacrifice under the command of then Major Kuldeep Singh Chandpuri (MCV).
