Details : On the 7th September, 1965 when Kalaikunda airfield was attacked by six Pakistani Sabre Jet aircraft, Flying Officer Subodh Chandra Mamgain, who was flying as ‘Wingman’ in a section on combat air patrol followed his leader into intercept them immediately. Although the enemy aircraft were superior in number and our anti-aircraft guns were active over the combat area Flying Officer Mamgain engaged the enemy aircraft in complete disregard of his personal safety. The enemy aircraft tried evasive and counteroffensive manoeuvres at a very low level; but with firm determination and exceptional skill Flying Officer Mamgain outmanoeuvred two enemy aircraft and pressed home the attack ruthlessly. This resulted in one of the enemy aircraft being sent spinning to the ground, while the other badly damaged, was seen escaping trailing a cloud of smoke. In this encounter, Flying Officer Subodh Chandra Mamgain displayed great courage and devotion to duty in the best traditions of the Indian Air Force.
