Action for which recommended -

Before operations this officer was responsible for the detailed planning and organisation of the complete Air Base set up of the Force.

In spite of a sudden last minute change in plan which necessitated the move of the Main Air Base for this Force from AGARTALA to SYLHET, through the energy and experience of this officer, this Air Base was established in its new position and ready to meet all commitments by the time the operation had been launched.
