Flight Lieutenant Gian Parkash Sharma was commissioned in the Aeronautical Engineering (Mechanical) Branch of the Indian Air Force in October, 1964.
During the December, 1971, operations, as the Engineering Officer of a Helicopter Unit operating from one of our airfields in the forward area in the Western Sector, he was required to carry out the second line servicing of Helicopters which otherwise would have been carried out at the original location. Though faced with a difficult task, with his sustained hard work and judicious utilisation of spares, carried out six 100 hours inspections, three hub changes and two engine changes and ensured quick turn around of the Helicopters. But for his personal efforts, the unit could not have been able to carry out the large number of operational missions.
Flight Lieutenant Gian Parkash Sharma displayed zeal, capacity for sustained hard work and high professional skill in the finest traditions of the Indian Air Force. For his distinguished service of a high order, he is awarded Vishisht Seva Medal.
