  1. Loved reading this! ❤️ It’s been a while since I visited Hall of Fame in Leh & Kargil Memorial in Drass. I read your post on the latter too. 😊 It’s very personal for me since my dad is featured in both museums as well. He was in charge of Batalik during the war. Leh & Kyari were home for me for a while too. So I have an emotional connect with Leh Ladakh. Your post brought back a lot of memories! 😊
