Wing Commander Paul Lauzado (4153) was commissioned in the Aeronautical of Engineering (Mechanical) of the Indian Air Force in August 1951. He has been on the posted strength of an Equipment Depot since October, 1970.
Wing Commander Lauzado in his assignment as the Commanding Officer has shown striking initiative, tremendous drive and singular ability which have inspired all personnel working under him to put in their very best. As a result his Depot made a significant contribution towards the success of the Indo-Pak operations in December, 1971.
One of the major tasks of the Depot was to ensure prompt stock transfer of huge quantities of explosives and other stores to Air Storage Park for building up their War Reserves. This task was planned and executed most efficiently and strictly to schedule.
Throughout this period commencing from April 1971 till the end of hostilities, the repair activities of this Depot have been remarkable. This record production of critically required stores surpassed all previous performance of the Depot and provided a tremendous help towards the war effort.
The Depot both in its activities of repair and supply, has excelled itself and has given a remarkable logistic support to the operational units during the emergency. This effort is all the more commendable in view of the fact that the Depot was not given any additional resources of manpower.
Wing Commander Paul Lauzado has shown a remarkable zeal and tremendous organizing ability and leadership in the management of this Depot during the emergency, and has rendered distinguished service of a high order. He is awarded the Vishisht Seva Medal.
