Let's salute to our Indian Army together, We are proud to be Indian.
On the night of 8th/9th December, 1971, one of our forward airfields was subjected to heavy bombing and staffing by enemy aircraft, resulting in the fire in the Rocket Dump. The fire spread at a fast rate and the whole dispersal area was lit. The pens and the buildings also became visible and were exposed to danger of enemy air attacks. In the meantime, the second air raid siren was also sounded. Unmindful of the risk involved, Leading Aircraftsman Omkar Singh immediately volunteered to assist in putting out the fire. The task was accomplished successfully and the ammunition dump and dispersal were saved from the next enemy air raid.
In this action, Leading Aircraftsman Omkar Singh displayed commendable courage and devotion to duty.
