On the 29th August 1959, Sergeant Ghosh volunteered to be dropped at great personal risk into a very small and dangerous dropping zone in a remote area in the midst of thick jungle where there were unpredictable crosscurrents of wind. His action fulfilled pressing operational necessity. The courage and skill shown by him in the face of such hazards were in the best traditions of the Air Force.
