Monday, June 25, 2018 INDIAN ARMY OPERATIONS IN DRAS KARGIL AND LEH NOVEMBER 1948 INDIAN ARMY OPERATIONS IN DRAS KARGIL AND LEH  NOVEMBER 1948 The Zojila Pass ( 11,578 ft) was held by approximately a company plus of Gilgit Scouts and had withstood various determined Indian assaults supported by artillery, Tempest aircrafts and launched by regular Indian Army units of Brigade size. (105) The strength of the Pakistani position at Zojila lay in immense natural defensive strength,unusually high altitude and extreme toughness and determination of the indomitable Gilgit Scouts to defend their fatherland against the Indians. Thimaya appreciated that tanks alone could achieve a breakthrough and took the brilliant decision of employing tanks at the highest altitude in the history of warfare till that time. This record was broken by the Indians again during the Sino-Indian Conflict of 1962 once the Indians broke the record and again by 7th Light Cavalry when Stuart Tanks were employed at 14,000 feet only. (106) A squadron of Stuart Light Tanks of 7th Light Cavalry was brought all the way from Akhnur a distance of 445 Kilometres,in about a fortnight, in conditions of absolute secrecy. (107) The tanks reached Baltal 60 miles east of Srinagar on 15th October where there turrets which had been taken separately were refixed. (108) The Indians were lucky in having Thimaya (a South Indian) who believed in leading from the front.Thimaya personally flew an air recce mission over the Pass on 15th October. (109) Meanwhile snow fall had started and this resulted in postponing date of attack from 25 October to 1st November. Finally on 01 November the tanks, Thimaya in the leading tank (110) attacked the Pass leading two infantry battalions in the attack on the Zojila. No army in the world could have stopped these juggernauts without anti tank guns #thimaya #indianarmy #pakistanarmy #kargil #dras #leh #zojillapass #zojilla #baltistan #ladakh #7lightcavalry History of Pakistan Army - Volume One- 1757 to 1948-Low Cost Black and White: Low Cost Black and White Edition Paperback – May 11, 2017 https://www.amazon.com/History-Pakistan-Army-1948-Low-Black/dp/1546613145/ref=sr_
