Details :

Wing Commander Sarabjit Singh was appointed Commanding Officer of a sensitive squadron with effect from 30 Jun 84.

During this period, the squadron was entrusted with many hazardous special recce missions. He organized his resources well and produced excellent results which helped in reevaluation of the threat.

On the home front, he set an enviable growth rate target of 25% for the annual survey effort by the squadron. Despite sudden exodus of senior aircrew, non availability of supervisors in both Canberra and Chitra Flights and poor serviceability of aircraft, he not only met the target figure but also created an all-time record of surveying 5.7 lakh Sq Kms. The Squadron's effort earned the Air Force as revenue of Rs. 2.5 crores for the year 1984-85. The unit's contribution to strategic recce and survey brought tremendous credit to the Indian Air Force.

In his capacity as Commanding Officer, he has shown remarkable acumen for understanding the dynamics of human behaviour. He was able to motivate his officers and men to draw out their best potential. A deep camaraderie combined with respect for service traditions pervades all the ranks in the squadron and has resulted in the highest standard of operational preparedness.

For his professional competence and single minded devotion to duty, which are in keeping with the highest traditions of the Air Force, the President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Wing Commander Sarabjit Singh.
