Details :

Group Captain Herbert Moel David was commissioned in the Air Force in Aug 56. A fighter pilot of proven merit, he has been senor flight commander of two front line fighter squadrons and commanded with distinction an operational fighter squadron.

Since April 80, Gp Capt H. M. David has been station commander of a forward base. In fact this officer volunteered to extend his tenure at this hard Station to complete the first phase of its development into a mini Wing. During this period Gp Capt David has brought about several improvements at the base which can easily be seen in all echelons of activity. Particular mention needs to be made of the operational set up, the fact that the Station successfully accommodated and launched a very large number of aircraft and personnel during major joint exercises. On the domestic front he expanded all facilities with intelligence and in keeping with the needs of the community. He worked without flagging for long hours to achieve this and the fact that he volunteered to extend his stay speaks of his devotion and will to get things done.

For his distinguished service of a high order, the President, is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Ground Captain Herbert Moel David.
