Commemorating the ‘Rajat Jayanti’ (Silver Jubilee) of the Kargil victory and paying tribute to the valour and sacrifices of the soldiers, the Indian Army and the Regiment of Artillery have launched a nationwide Motorcycle Expedition. Named ‘Delta 5 Motorcycle Expedition,’ the journey was flagged off simultaneously from three locations: Dinjan military station (east), Dhanuskodi (south), and Dwarka (west). The expedition will converge in Delhi before culminating in Drass, Kargil.

On the Eastern Route, Delta 5 Expedition will traverse 4000 km to Drass, passing through eight states and union territories. The expedition reached Jorhat Military Station on June 12, where Major General Deepak Sharma, VSM General Officer Commanding, 41 Sub Area, flagged off the riders. Brigadier MR Subodh, Deputy General Officer Commanding 41 Sub Area, further flagged off the expedition from Jorhat on June 13.

All the motorcyclists participating in the expedition are from the Regiment of Artillery. The spirit of the expedition is to highlight the stellar role played by the Indian Army in the war and to honour the bravehearts who made the supreme sacrifice in the line of duty.

The Delta 5 Motorcycle Expedition will also felicitate Kargil Veer Naris and War Veterans en route, in true recognition of their selfless sacrifice to the nation. In addition to commemorating the victory in the icy heights of Kargil, the expedition aims to educate school children, NCC cadets, and citizens of India about the valour of the Indian Army soldiers in achieving the Kargil Victory.
