Details : Wing Commander Panch Nando Mukherji, was detailed a second time for operations in the J & K area. In addition to his duties as navigation leader of one of our Operational squadrons, he carried out the duties of Officer-in-Charge flying at one of our operational Wings. In spit of the hazards in the difficult and unfamiliar mountain terrain, Wing Commander Mukherji always volunteered for operational sorties and flew about 800 operational hours in that area. As Officer-in-charge Flying, he coordinated the operational efforts of the various Squadrons efficiently and with considerable success. During the emergency he was invariably the first to volunteer for any reconnaissance ordered over the operational areas.
