To meet the requirements of the training establishments and operational units, one of our Base Repair Depots has continually been
called upon to increase the output of Vampire aircraft. By the end of 1964, this Depot was able to turn out only a few aircraft a month. As this was still not meeting the requirements revised plans to step up production were drawn up.
In April, 1965, Squadron Leader Iqbal Singh was posted in and was made Officer In charge Vampire Reconditioning Section. Immediate after he took over, it became apparent that this officer had the capacity to analyse and efficiently handle organizational problems connected with production activity. The impact of his taking over was soon felt as this officer so arranged the section that with the same man power ground equipment, tools and resources a sustained output of about twice the number of aircraft per moth was achieved in a short time.
During the recent hostilities with Pakistan everyone was called upon for a still bigger effort. Squadron Leader Iqbal Singh willingly accepted this additional challenge and by setting personal example for hard work and devotion to duty was responsible for producing a record number of aircraft in the month of September, 1965; a spectacular performance when compared with recent past.
Squadron leader Iqbal Singh has excellent organizing capability and a practical mind backed with sound professional skill. By his performance over a period of six months, Squadron Leader Iqbal Singh has rendered distinguished service of a high order.
