|Details :|| |
During the operations against Pakistan, Squadron Leader Tej Prakash Singh Gill, the Flight Commander of an Operational Squadron, took part in as many as 21 ground attack missions in support of our ground forces in Sialkot, Chhamb, Lahore and Kasur Sectors. On two such missions on 19th and 21st September, 1965, Squadron Leader T.P.S. Gill encountered a very heavy barrage of anti-aircraft fire. Instead of breaking off the attack squadron Leader Gill pressed it home defiantly in utter disregard of his personal safety and destroyed a considerable amount of enemy armour and field guns.
During these missions, Squadron Leader Tej Prakash Singh Gill displayed courage and leadership of a high order.
