Gazette Notification: 10 Pres/66,1-1-1966
Operation: 1965 Riddle
Date of Award: 01 Sep 1965

During the operations against Pakistan, Squadron Leader Jag Mohan Nath, commanding officer of a Canberra unit, undertook several missions over enemy territory, entailing unescorted long-distance daylight flying over well-defended airfields and installations. Although, fully aware of the risks, he chose to undertake them himself instead of detailing his squadron pilots until he was ordered to let his colleagues do some of them. He brought information of vital importance which enabled the Air Force to deliver its attacks on targets, the destruction of which hindered the war effort of Pakistan.
