On this day in 1999 (July 8), Indian Army soldiers recaptured Tiger Hills from the Pakistani Army. This strategic victory was crucial as Tiger Hills overlooked important army installations and facilities.

At 16,608 feet, Tiger Hill required immense endurance and bravery from Indian troops. It took many days of fighting in freezing weather for the soldiers of 8 Sikh, 18 Grenadiers, and 2 Naga to recapture this important hilltop.

The battle resulted in 18 Grenadiers being honored with one Param Vir Chakra, two Maha Vir Chakras, and six Vir Chakras. The unit also received the Chief of Army Staff Citation and Theatre Honour.

To remember and celebrate, we've created the Tiger Hill 1999 T-Shirt featuring the iconic photo of our troops on the hilltop. It costs ₹549 and comes in multiple colour variants and for kids too. You can get them here.

However, there's also a way to get them for ₹0. Yes, you heard that right.
