|Details :|| |
The late Sqn. Ldr. Baldev Singh Dogra (1921) completed a very large number of sorties during the Jammu and Kashmir Operations. Being a pilot of great skill he was responsible in effectively intercepting and destroying many enemy vehicles on the Kohala Bagh Road.
All his sorties were marked for his skill in flying, determination to get at the enemy at all costs and for unfailing devotion to duty. Often he took on difficult targets without hesitation and concluded his missions with success even when bad weather intervened. He had on many occasions carried out low level offensive reconnaissance on the Kohala Bagh Road and brought back valuable information which proved of immense value.
For his excellent leadership throughout the Kashmir Operations, he has been awarded the Vir Chakra.
