E-mail Print

Medics (Possibly Red Cross)Rare photographs taken from Nitin Gokhale's "NewsWarrior" Blog showcases IAF Helicopters engaged in POW repatriation after the 1962 war. These are from a set of  65 rare photographs dating back to the 1962 India-China War that were dug out of archives by his friend Nitin Shastri. These photographs were mostly never seen before and offer a rare glimpse into the Indian Air Force's operations at that time. The photographs show IAF Mi-4 helicopters and the rare Allouette III sporting Red Cross markings - implying that this was a post-war photograph showing sick POW repatriations. The numbers on the helicopters indicate that this was from No.110 Helicopter Unit
