From The Lion’s Den

Have managed to get some photographs from the Lions. Unfortunately some of the data from the Marut era is not available, so there is hope some more will be retrieved subsequently.

The Squadron, commanded by Wg Cdr BB Bhadkamkar, converted in early 1974.  Aircrew were initially sent from Hindon to Jodhpur for their conversion.  Aircraft were allotted gradually thereafter and the squadron moved to Jodhpur.

Initially a few Marut qualified veterans were added to the Mystere crowd; Jugjug, Kamy, Sudhir Batra, KP Sreekant……
