SG50 Special #47: Singapore's Combat Veteran Daljit Singh

After an incident where Indonesian commandos killed and mutilated the bodies of 9 men from 2SIR in Kota Tinggi, Daljit Singh and other troops were sent from Singapore into Malaysia to flush out these Indonesia commandos. It took Daljit Singh and other brave men three months to hunt down these saboteurs and in total, they killed or captured a total of around 60 Indonesian commandos. Daljit Singh alone was credited for single-handedly killing 6 or 7 enemy combatants during this operation in Kota Tinggi.
