Heady Days

A collection of photographs from 1835 to the heady days of India’s independence. Some of these pictures were forwarded by Gp Capt CKK Menon sometime ago as a Power Point Presentation “India Rarest Pictures”. The others were sent to me in an email.

One Response to Heady Days

  1. Just a few days back, there was a program on TV prominently featuring Sqn.Ldr. Baldev Singh. It took us back to Bangalore get together and the display of LAC flown by him.
    Not realizing that after a few days such a sad news will be posted on the blog.
    May his soul rest in piece and we get to see the aircraft in squadron service. His proud moment.
