Squadron Leader Lath resolved the identification problem of stores of foreign make by hard work and study in depth. He established all the detailed information required in respect of the stores indented and then with the assistance of the staff built up a system whereby the required information is collected and suitably recorded. He also planned and put into effect a system of thorough scrutiny of 'Production Holds Up' demands and diligently progressed procurement action on them. He also evolved a method to ensure that locally procurable stores are always available by resorting to their purchase well in time. He has established a sound provisioning system at a big and very important Base Repair Depot of the Air Force.
