Details :

During the operations against Pakistan, Pilot Officer Subramania Sankaran was recalled from leave and moved to a forward wing. He was asked to assume the responsibility of running the Daily Servicing Section at his base which housed aircraft not only from his own squadron but from other units also. The aircraft were required round the clock, starting from early morning armed patrols which had to be airborne at 0430 hours. Himself an armament officer, he went out of his way to gain a workable knowledge of the other trades and within a very short time was able to run a Daily Servicing Section in an efficient manner and to coordinate its activities in order to meet the demands from detachments in other forward bases. He was required at times to work upto 17 hours a day. For several days Pilot Officer Subramania Sankaran did not leave the Daily Servicing Section premises. In the execution of this task Pilot Officer Subramania Sankaran displayed commendable devotion to duty, great skill and good leadership. Working against many handicaps and under difficult conditions, he set an inspiring example to all those around him.
