Till Memory Serves is a journey down a forgotten road, re-visiting the heroes of the Indian Army who served in British India in the time honoured tradition of valour and courage. It is a factual account of the indefatigable spirit of the forty Victoria Cross winners between 1912 and 1947. From the fifteen year old Lance Naik Nand Singh, the brave Gurkha Sudadar Lal Bahadur Thapa to the fearless Lieutenant Karamjeet Singh Judge, they all shared the rare attributes of selfless dedication to duty, a disregard to personal safety, and an endearing commitment to izzat. Published in honour of the 150th anniversary of the birth of the Victoria Cross, this book is a tribute to the valour of the heroes who set the benchmarks for independent India's Armed Forces.
