Additional Notes

Remarks: Quarterly Database Update Note added: 0000-00-00
My father AVM (Retd.) Chand Parkash Mehra, AVSM (2469) passed away on December 27th 2009. His record in the database is erronoeous / incomplete in the following respects: Rank - AVM - not Air Commodore, Branch - he was commissioned into the Admin branch but transferred to Equipment in the late 60's / early seventies when he was posted to our embassy in Moscow to facilitate the flow of equipment. Date of Retirement 18th September 1975. Could you please correct the entry? Many thanks. Pradeep Mehra
