Details :

While in Command of Signal Unit, Wing Commander Kirpal Singh Sufi was entrusted with the responsibility of training technical personnel on a new type of equipment. In spite of the meager staff at his disposal, he got down to this task with devotion and was successful in training a large number of officers and men within a short period of eight months. During this period, the mobility of his unit was also tested, without any adverse reflection. Wing Commander Sufi was solely responsible for this good all round performance.

As Officer Commanding of another signals Unit, Wing Commander Sufi has been responsible for improving the administrative efficiency of the unit and its operation alertness. By good example and tact he has been able to knit the unit personnel into a highly trained and efficient team. He has also been able to establish very effective liaison with local civil agencies to make the Air Defence reporting system of the area a success.
