During the War, Corporal Sher Mohammad was manning a Light Ack. Ack. gun at P.A.F. Station, Sargodha. On 6th September, 1965, while Indian aircraft were strafing and rocketing the base, Corporal Sher Mohammad courageously performed his duty by keeping up an accurate fire against the invaders and damaged one enemy aircraft. This was the first engagement of P.A.F. guns against the enemy and determined fire by Corporal Sher Mohammad greatly enhanced the morale and fighting spirit of the P.A.F. gun-crew.
