Details :

Squadron Leader Dewki Nandan Sharma is the Senior Armament officer at a forward operational Wing. During the recent hostilities when bombing and straffing were being carried out by the enemy, Squadron Leader Dewki Nandan Sharma, without any regard for his personal safety, moved from one location to another to feed ack. ack. guns, with the required ammunition and other stores, when the actual raid was in progress. Further, this officer without the help of any other officer, planned, coordinated, supervised and executed the missile preparation of the explosive stores required for various types of aircraft, practically for a period of 22 days non-stop. The task was carried out cheerfully with extraordinary zeal, which boosted the morale of his subordinates.

Squadron Leader D.N. Sharma, even during the actual raid, without any regard for personal safety, moved around the airfield installations to locate the un-exploded bombs and missiles and to effect immediate clearance to facilitate resumption of operational sorties.
