How many of us know about heroism of #Tiger Air Warrior Sqn Ldr A B Devayya MVC?

That IAF got to know of incredible gallantry from Pakistani Pilot he shot down & a British author?

That it took 23 years after 1965 War to honour our Braveheart?
1/4 Returning from mission over Sargodha, Bravehearts Mystere was hit by Pak Pilot

Instead of ejecting, he turned to combat with superior F-104 Starfighter & shot it. Flt Lt Amjad Hussain ejected safely

Sqn Ldr Devayya didn't return and was declared Missing in Action & then KIA
2/4
