Details :

On the 17th May 1970, at one of the forward airfields, a major grass fire broke out covering a large area around the Bomb Dump. Flight Lieutenant Kuldeep Kumar Sharma was the first officer to arrive at the spot and to lead the fire crew trying to control it. With the help from the small fire crew, he bravely fought the fire till more men arrived. Due to wind, the grass inside the Bomb Dump, the empty crates and the tarpaulins covering the High Explosive Bombs caught fire. Undeterred he kept on fighting the fire even when some stores began exploding.

Throughout, Flight Lieutenant Kuldeep Kumar Sharma displayed conspicuous gallantry and determination of a very high order.
