Sword of Honour Winners, PMA, Kakul, Abbotabad

1st PMA Long Course Sword of Honour Winner - BSUO Raja Aziz Bhatti (04 February 1950)The Sword of Honour is awarded to that Gentleman Cadet (or Gentlewoman Cadet) of Long Course who achieves an overall best performance during his or her entire training period at the Pakistan Military Academy, Kakul. The award of Sword of Honour is considered as a great honour and it is the cherished dream of all cadets.

The cadets of Graduate Course/Technical Graduate Course/War Course/Special Short Course are awarded with COAS Cane (Previously C-in-C Cane). Whereas the cadets from Integrated Course and Lady Officers’ Course are awarded with Commandant’s Cane. Passing Out Parade of Mujahid Course-1 was held with 127 PMA Long Course on 20 April 2013. Can any reader inform what kind of Cane does this course get?

There were however two exceptions when cadets from 9th Graduate Course (21 April 1973) and 10 Graduate Course (20 Oct 1973) were awarded Sword of Honour instead of C-in-C Cane. Due to 1971 War, there were no Long Courses after the Passing Out Parade of 48 PMA (11 Dec 1971) and a few short courses and Graduate courses were run. The Passing Out Parade of the next Long Course, 49 PMA, was held on 19 April 1974. During this period only 9th and 10th Graduate Courses were given Sword of Honour.

Due to 1965 War 37 PMA Long Course was converted into a short course therefore on 30 March 1966 CSUO Kamal Alam was given C-in-C Cane instead of Sword of Honour. 37 PMA Course did not get a chance to hold Bn appointments, as 36 PMA was still there and  passed out later (on 7 May 1966). They ( 36 PMA) got regular commission after completing one year and got ante date of seniority by one day over 37 PMA.

The BEST cadets from a number of PMA Courses were selected and sent to the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, UK. This selection was usually completed before the end of the Second Term at Kakul. They were graded as the BEST cadets of their respective Courses and there are some stellar performances by these Pakistani cadets at Sandhurst of which Pakistan and PMA Kakul can be proud. A Post regarding Sandhurst Graduates of Pakistan Army has been added separately.

This Post shows the photos of Sword of Honour winners receiving this coveted award on their Passing Out Parade. There is a separate Post for C-in-C Cane/COAS Cane Winners in this website. COAS Cane winners from OTS Kohat/OTS Mangla will In Sha Allah be shown later in another Post.

Editor’s Note: The following Analysis has been contributed by Lt Gen Tahir Mahmud Qazi (Retd) Air Def. Other officers are welcome to join in and contribute.

Analysis: Sword of Honour 

General:
1. Military Academies are judged by the quality of officer they produce. In the Armed Forces, the biggest quality of an officer is to prove himself as a great leader of men, by leading from the front. A famous dictum is that ‘Come On is a better command than Go On’. I congratulate Col Rashid Cheema for undertaking the effort of compiling data of the awardees of the ‘Sword of Honour’. Should it be left here. To me perhaps not. We should carry out an analysis and draw some deductions. I am going to make an attempt, but all my colleagues are welcome to join and contribute.

Analysis:
2. Acid Test of any soldier is the performance during moments of truth. When I had a look at the list, I realized that ‘Pakistan Military Academy’ has a unique distinction, which no other Military Academy can match. Its grooming and assessment system has proved its efficiency and objectivity. The cadets so identified in their very initial years proved their worth on the battle field. Have a look.
a.1965 Indo-Pak War: When the war came, thirty-one courses were passed out and there were thirty-two awardees of Sword of Honour. The highest gallantry award was bestowed upon Maj Raja Aziz Bhatti (Sword of Honour, 1st PMA). In addition, following data is interesting:-
(1) BSUO KK Afridi (4th PMA) fought bravely in Rann of Kuchh battle and was awarded Wound Stripe.
(2) BSUO Hazoor Hasnain (20th PMA) was awarded SJ.
(3) BSUO M Naeem Akhtar (26th PMA) Embraced Shahadat in defence of Haji Pir Pass in 1965.
(4) BSUO Shabir Sharif (29th PMA) was awarded SJ.
It may be kept in mind that most of the officers were very young when the war came.
b. 1971 Indo-Pak War: When the war came, forty-seven courses had passed out and we had 48 awardees of Sword of Honour. Again the highest gallantry award was bestowed on Maj Shabbir Sharif, Sword of Honour, (29th PMA). How else an Academy could be judged? The two wars that the country fought, the cadets were identified in their tender age of 17-19 years and they proved the system of assessment right by laying their lives. Can any one match this? I leave it here. Have a look at the other performances in 1971 War:-
(1)   BSUO Saad Ullah  (3 PMA) awarded HJ.
(2)   BSUO Hazoor Hasnain (20 PMA) was again awarded SJ.
(3)   BSUO Adib Anwar (32 PMA) embraced Shahadat near Chichawatni, and now a railway station is named after him.
(4)   CUSO Sabi-ud-Din Bokhari (38 PMA) was awarded SJ.
c. War on Terror & Siachen: The stories of bravery of our young officers are unending
(1)   Cadet (appt not known) Meraj Muhammad (112 PMA) was awarded SBt posthumously.
(2)   BSUO Mohammad Javed (70 PMA) embraced Shahdat at Siachen as Captain.
3. Career Progression: Promotion in the Pakistan Army is the second indicator of the capability and performance of the officer, based on their qualities. Following data is interesting:
a. Lt Gens: The awardees from IMA/PMA, 4th, 7th, 17th, 23rd, 40th, 41st, 42nd, 44th, 50th, 51st, 52nd, 55th, and 67th Long courses (14 in total) have been promoted. The list  will go on as the latest courses are junior, as of now.
b. Maj Gens: The awardees from 11th, 22nd, 24th, 34th, 38th, 46th, 52nd, 56th, 58th, 60th, 63rd, 67th, 68th, 69th, 71st and 74th (16 in total) have been promoted.
c. Brigs: The awardees from 2nd, 3rd, 20th, 21st, 25th, 37th, 49th, 53rd, 62nd, 64th, 65th, 66th and 72nd PMA long courses (13 in total) have been promoted.
d. Federal Secretaries: In the initial years of Pakistan, quite a few officers were transferred to Civil Services (the practice is still on as per the provisions of Constitution). Some of them rose to Federal Secretary or equivalent positions. Awardees from 6th, 9th, 13th and 14th PMA Long Course joined Civil Services and progressed. A few officers died while in service and a few left the service on account of one reason or the other.
By and large, the assessment of PMA has stood the test of time. If there had been some disappointments, that is only to prove that it’s a man-made assessment system.

Editor: Now see the photos of Sword of Honour Winners of different Courses. It will also be interesting to know at what rank did these officers retire!!
