During the joint exercise, different scenarios are rehearsed to understand each other’s battle procedure better so as to aid inter-operability between the troops of both countries in case of any unforeseen contingency.

The regimental song is a tribute to a fallen rifleman Badluram during the World War II, whose share of ration after his death helped the regiment survive, when the Japanese surrounded them and cut-off supplies.

Here are the lyrics of the song:

Ek khubsurat ladki thi…

Usko dekh ke rifleman…

Chindi khichna bhul gaya…

Havaldar Major dekh liya…

Usko pittu lagaya…

Badluram ek sipahi tha…

Japan war mein …

Quarter master smart tha…

Usne ration nikala…

Badluram ka badan zameen ke niche hain…

Toh humein uska ration milta hain…

Sabaash… hallelujah…

Toh humein uska ration milta hain…
