Details :

Wing Commander Surinder Singh has been commanding a transport squadron since September 1966. This squadron has been primarily responsible for the air maintenance of far-flung areas on the Northern border. Despite many difficulties, he reorganised the Squadron which enabled it to meet special commitments at short notice. He has flown over 1,500 hours in the hazardous terrain in NEFA, Naga Hills, etc. He has also undertaken numerous flights for flood relief in the country. He served with UNEF in the Congo in 1960, where he flew a number of missions in complete disregard of his safety. Throughout, Wing Commander Surinder Singh displayed courage and devotion to duty.
