Details :

Squadron Leader Dalip Singh Sabherwal has been engaged in airlift operations for nearly six years. He has flown over 6,700 hours, of which 1,670 hours were on operational missions. In December 1967, he was detailed to study the feasibility of heavy transport aircraft operation in one of the border sectors. He personally undertook most of the trial flights in the difficult terrain of the area and finally helped in compiling the operating procedures which made subsequent operations in the area both productive and safe. When he was a Detachment Commander in one of the operational areas in March 1969, he accomplished a record airlift of over 1,000 tonnes in a month with only a few aircraft.

Throughout, Squadron Leader Dalip Singh Sabherwal displayed courage and devotion to duty.
