|Details :|| |
Wing Commander Raghbir Girgla Singh (3665) was commissioned in the Logistics Branch of the Air Force in August, 1949. He has served as an equipment officer at a number of Equipment Depots, and also at operational stations. He was selected to serve in the United Kingdom at the time when Avro (now Hindustan Subroto) 748 project was in its infancy. Subsequently he has carried out the duties of a Staff Officer at Air Headquarters.
Since April 1970 Wing Commander Singh has been serving as Officer-in-Charge of a newly created Support Wing at a Base Repair Depot. The setting up of this Support Wing involved the responsibility of receiving stock transfers of spares and repairable equipment from the Equipment Depots. Wing Commander Singh organized his work so well that he was able to receive and bring on charge all the stocks transfers within a month.
The spares and equipment received had to be regrouped, reorganized and properly stocked in a newly modified hangar. Simultaneously the Forward Supply Stores in the workshops has to be properly stocked. Wing Commander Singh successfully tackled both these complex jobs in a short time, without interrupting the Supply of spares to the repair bays.
Whilst engaged in this task, Wing Commander Singh did not loose sight of equally important task of carrying out provisioning reviews, he realized that there were a number of items of which adequate stocks were not available and apprehended production delays due to this. In order to forestall these delays, he, in collaboration with the Material Planning Control Officer of the Base Repair Depot undertook extensive market research, and organized countrywide purchase of essential spares. The production delays in 1970-71 were thereby considerably reduced.
Wing Commander Raghbir Girgla Singh has shown striking initiative, drive and organizing capacity. He has rendered distinguished service of a high order for which he is awarded the Vishisht Seva Medal.
