Details :

Wing Commander Sajjan Singh Sidhu (9188) Administrative was commissioned in the Indian Air Force in Dec 64. Throughout his career, he has performed the duties assigned to him effectively, with utmost industry and in the best interest of the service. On a number of occasions, he carried out these tasks at considerable personal risk and inconvenience.

As a Station Security Officer and Counter Intelligence Officer at one of the forward AF Stations, Wg Cdr Sidhu established excellent rapport with his counterparts in local army units and civil intelligence agencies. He also maintained close liaison with all the Sarpanches and got regular inputs from them. He had geared up the Station Security staff to meet any unforeseen contingency, particularly during Punjab disturbances and operation Blue Star. He knew the pulse of the villagers all around the Airfield and was thus able to advise the Air Officer Commanding and ensure suitable anticipatory measures well in time.

When Wg Cdr Sidhu was posted in Jun 82 as many as fourteen cases involving this Station were pending in Civil Courts. The cases pertained to Air Force farmland leased out to civilians for cultivation. All these cases were followed vigorously by him and closed without any adverse reflection on the Air Force. He was able to use his experience favourable as a qualified lawyer.

Wg Cdr Sidhu has given an excellent account of himself in the capacities that he has functioned at the Station and is a very fine example of highly motivated and dedicated officer. He is willing, very positive and a very fine field worker. He works tirelessly throughout the day with total disregard to his personal convenience or family needs.

For his professionalism, sense of duty and distinguished service of a high order, the President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Wing Commander Sajjan Singh Sidhu.
