Wing Commander Anup Singh Bedi was commissioned in the Logistics branch on 16 Dec 61. He was posted to Air Headquarters with effect from 22 Feb 81.
In Jul 81, he was entrusted with the challenging task of executing the audiovisual publication campaign of the IAF during the Golden Jubilee year. He applied himself to this task diligently and drew up a comprehensive plan in order to achieve maximum media publicity for the IAF.
He liaised with Films Division for the free release of six selected documentaries and production of three new documentaries. Thus a documentary on IAF was issued every month all over the country in the Golden Jubilee year. It was through his untiring efforts that the feature film 'Vijeta' based on the life and expectation of a trainee Air Force pilot was made and exhibited.
He was also assigned the task of making a series of television films regarding various facets of the IAF by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting for telecast by Doordarshan. This was a Herculean task considering that making a feature film of 40-50 minutes duration requires 2-3 months for production. With single minded devotion to duty, Wg Cdr Bedi rose to the occasion, and produced thirteen such films. These were telecast nation-wide during the Golden Jubilee year. The excellent publicity achieved during the Golden Jubilee year was largely due to the stupendous efforts of the officer. The then Deputy Minister of Information and Broadcasting specially commended Wg Cdr Bedi's performance.
In Oct 83, Wg Cdr Bedi produced a documentary on the history of IAF titled "Down the Memory Lane" and later in 1985 a feature on the Siachen Glacier.
In recognition of his deep sense of involvement, dedication to duty, and resultoriented diligence, the President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Wing Commander Anup Singh Bedi.
