|Details :|| |
Wing Commander Ranbir Singh Chauhan (6965) Logistics was commissioned in Jan 63. He is an outstanding sportsman and was specially selected to undergo training in National Institute of Sports, Patiala. He has rendered distinguished service in all the Command and Staff Appointments held by him.
He was in Command of An Air Stores Park from 30 Dec 82 to 08 Mar 85. ASP has an extremely vital role to play in providing the Lgs Support to operational units in the Western and Southwestern theaters. Normally, it deals mainly with aircraft spares and Automatic Replenishment System items. During the tenure of Wg Cdr RS Chauhan the workload of ASP multiplied many times. With the introduction of revised clothing policy, with most of the supplies being located in the North, Air Headquarters decided to use the ASP virtually as a clothing depot for receiving urgently required consignments and distributing them to the units all over the Air Force in order to ensure timely kitting of airmen. Due to shortage of storage accommodation Wg Cdr RS Chauhan had to devise his own methods for ensuring the fastest turnover since he was in no position to store the clothing items for any length of time. This task involved meticulous planning and long working hours for the ASP. It is to his credit of this officer that he motivated his men to rise to the occasion and comp leted all the extra tasks assigned to him.
He is a dynamic leader and has a great sense of responsibility. It was due to his leadership, zeal, devotion and total com mitment to the tasks in hand that the ASP, under his Command, was able to bag the Best Equipment Depot/Air Store Park Trophy for the first time.
For his distinguished service of a high order, his devotion to duty and loyalty to service, the President is pleased to award the Vishisht Seva Medal to Wing Commander Ranbir Singh Chauhan.
