Details :

Flight Lieutenant Gopalkrishnan Nair (9610) was commissioned in the Aeronautical Engineering Branch of the Indian Air Force in July, 1965. Since January, 1970, he has been serving with an operational squadron at a forward air base. With his professional skill, unflinching zeal and capacity for sustained hard work, he helped the Squadron in achieving one hundred per cent aircraft serviceability.

During the operations, the Squadron was required to move to different locations at very short notice. Despite the extremely difficult task of carrying out such moves during the black-out, the squadron was ready to meet any operational commitments within minutes of reaching the new destination. This could not have been accomplished but for the unstinting efforts, enthusiasm and initiative on the part of Flight Lieutenant Nair.

Throughout his career, he has displayed qualities of leadership, devotion to duty and high professional ability, rendering distinguished service of a high order. For this, Flight Lieutenant Gopalkrishnan Nair is awarded the Vishisht Seva Medal.
