Wg Cdr Amarjeet Singh Kullar, Vr.C


On 8th September 1965, Flt Lt Amarjeet Singh Kullar flew in a four aircraft formation which destroyed a supply train at Raiwind railway station. The train was carrying ammunition badly needed by the enemy forces in the Kasur region. The denial of this vital supply was a major factor in causing the withdrawal of enemy armour with very heavy losses.

During seven other operational sorties, Flt Lt Kullar destroyed or damaged at least six enemy tanks, armoured vehicles and gun emplacements. He carried out his attacks fearlessly against heavily defended enemy positions and his aircraft was hit by ground fire on three different occasions.

Throughout these operations, Flt Lt Kullar displayed courage and leadership in the best traditions of the Air Force.
