Wing Commander Anil Sinha took over command of a fighter Squadron at a forward base on 21 Sep 87.
Displaying a keen sense of dedication to duty, he personally planned the Squadron's operational flying training with a view to ensure maximum operational effectiveness of the Squadron. A clear indication of his effort in this aspect was 23 upgradations of aircrew status during his command. The Squadron was beset with an acute shortage of technical manpower and non-availability of sufficient spares. However, despite such constraints, Wg Cdr Sinha managed to obtain a very high rate of serviceability; largely through personal involvement.
For his outstanding qualities of leadership and dedication to duty, the President is pleased to award Vayu Sena Medal to Wg Cdr Anil Sinha.
