|Flt Lt||Arthur Srihari||3181 GD(P)||Award Date 29 Dec 1948||Announced 20 Nov 1950|
|Details :|| |
The late Flt. Lt. Arthur Srihari (3181) always showed tenacity of purpose and precision in all his sorties. By his ability to make quick decisions, he had on one occasion attacked and totally destroyed an enemy Brigade Headquarters which was controlling operations against our hard pressed forces.
He completed in a short period approximately 100 successful operational sorties, all of which were outstanding for the perseverance and determination in pressing home the attack on the enemy. Many long range sorties of his across a very difficult terrain in the Northern Sector were outstanding because of its navigational precision, ability to spot the camouflaged targets, and skill in attacking to destroy.
For the outstanding services rendered by him during the Kashmir Operations, the officer was posthumously awarded the Vir Chakra.
