Air Commodore A.A. Narayanan was commissioned in the General Duties Branch of the Air Force in 1940. He held several important appointments in various Air Force units including an assignment in Indonesia.
He was in command of our Air Force formation in Jammu & Kashmir Area from 1959 to 1962. By correct planning, with a limited number of aircraft and aircrew, he ensured the timely delivery of vital supplies to the forward areas, when air support had to be increased in magnitude with great speed to meet the Chinese attack in Ladakh. He set an example to the officers and men under his command by leading a number of difficult operational missions.
