Details :

Wing Commander Manjit Singh Judge (3709) was commissioned in the Logistics Branch of the Indian Air Force in November, 1949. At the time of Indo-Pak Conflict in December, 1971, he was commanding an Equipment Depot.

Wg. Cdr. Judge was called upon to exercise budgetary control and place indents on the overseas supply missions, over and above the need to maintain close and tactful liaison with Messrs Air India Ltd. With ingenuity and tact and a high devotion to duty he has accomplished his task in a praiseworthy manner. Despite the limited resources of the Depot, he also arranged successfully administratively arrangements for other operational units operating from that base during the Indo-Pak operations.

By his single minded loyalty and devotion to duty and well meditated management, despite the fact that no additional resources were placed at his disposal, this officer performed his assigned tasks cheerfully without regard to personal comforts. He displayed leadership and organizing ability and has rendered service of a high order. He is awarded the Vishisht Seva Medal.

Details :

Air Commodore Manjeet Singh Judge was commissioned in the Logistics Branch of the Indian Air Force in November 1949. Since then he has served with distinction in several important appointments at Equipment Depots, Commands and Air Headquarters. He was the Chief Equipment Officer of the largest Equipment Depot and later served as Deputy Director of Maintenance Planning at Air Headquarters. In both these assignments, he acquitted himself creditably. While he was the Chief Equipment Officer at the Equipment Depot, he ably planned and executed the stocks transfer of all ranges of sophisticated Electronics and aircraft spares. He also displayed outstanding administrative and organising ability when he was in command of a widely scattered Equipment Depot. During 1971 Conflict, despite very limited resources at his disposal, he provided very effective administrative support to the Units operating from that base. In recognition of his services, he was awarded Vishisht Seva Medal.

He is now in command of the largest Logistic Complex of the Indian Air Force holding over two lakh items. Recently, he successfully accomplished the important task of carrying out physical stock verification and identification of all the spares held in his Depot within a very short span of time

Air Commodore Manjeet Singh Judge has thus rendered distinguished service of an exceptional order.
