Details : AIR VICE MARSHAL DEVIAH SUBIA, Vr. C: Air Vice Marshal Subia took over his appointment [SASO, WAC HQ] only a few months prior to the outbreak of hostilities. He made a thorough study of the requirements of air operations in the Western Sector, paying full attention to the minutest detail of each aspect of air operations. He personally studied and analysed all operational procedure and ensured that there was no ambiguity in these instructions and that they were fully understood by all concerned. He worked for long hours to ensure that Squadrons/ Units were deployed as planned with maximum economy of effort and minimum inconvenience to the personnel involved. He planned the moves in such a manner that at all stages the Squadrons retained their full operational capability to counter- act any pre-emptive strike by the enemy. He displayed remarkable organising ability in establishing within a very short period, a chain of observation posts around our forward airfields for reporting low flying aircraft. Throughout the period of hostilities, he carefully co-ordinated all aspects of operations, especially the strike missions at night. These operations involved strike forces from another Command. It was primarily due to his careful planning and foresight that all missions were successfully completed without any mishaps. His cheerful disposition and self- confidence were inspiration to his staff at the Headquarters and to Commanders in the field. Through out his career, in peace and in war, Air Vice Marshal Subia rendered distinguished service of the most exceptional order.

Under his able leadership, air operations in aid of the army achieved a new dimension. Close air support was given most effectively and the enemy's lines of communications were perpetually disrupted, isolating his forward troops. Enemy ammunition and fuel dumps were also blown up successfully, and many of his Headquarters locations destroyed. All this was done with speed and determination, despite intense enemy opposition. The officer displayed superior leadership and carried out planning of the most exceptional order.
