Keeler. Flight Lieutenant KY Singh was also responsible for many more successful intercept ions on the 5th, 7th, 8th and 9th September, 1965. On more than three such occasions he was in the control cabin giving broadcast control to own aircraft even though his Unit was under attack by enemy aircraft.
