    @Ray - Thanks.

    Kumaon Regiment

    The Kumaon Regiment is one of the highest decorated regiment of the Indian Army. The regiment traces its origins to the 18th century and has fought in every major campaign of the British Indian Army and the Indian Army, including the two world wars. Kumaon gets its recruits from Kumaonis of Kumaon division and Ahir from the plains.[1]

    The very first Param Vir Chakra (highest decoration of Indian Armed Forces) was won by this regiment by Major Somnath Sharma.
