Lahore - 14.2 Bloody Miles

September 1965 - When the Indian troops were advancing towards Lahore in 1965, they faced severe resistance from the Pakistani armed forces. To boost the morale, the Indian commander told the troops on the wireless communication that Lahore is only 2 - 3 miles away. At that time, the communications were not encrypted and both forces could intercept each others' communication. One of the Pakistani soldier also heard this conversation from his bunker. There was a sign near the bunker which read "Lahore - 14 Miles". He got out from the bunker, took the sign and moved towards the advancing Indian troops for some yards and posted a modified sign there. It now read "Lahore - 14.2 Bloody Miles ".
