    Brig GS Sidhu

    Brig GS Sidhu was one of our very senior and outstanding Signals officer. He proved his mettle within and outside the Corps. He commanded 4 Inf Div Sig Regt, raised 9 Mtn Div/ later 9 Inf Div Sig Regt, was BM of a brigade, GSO1 Ops 6 Mtn Div during 1965 War and CSO IV Corps in 1971 War. A number of officers who distinguished themselves later in service learnt the essentials of signalling under him when he was OC Tac Wing in School of Signals, Mhow. Later he also trained the signallers of CRPF.
    Those who served with or known Brig Sidhu have the highest regards for his ability, professionalism and humane qualities.
    Brig GS Sidhu was one of those who stood firmly for the technical requirements and advice he rendered for providing signal communications to further the operational and logistics plans of commanders. He set very high standards and commanded respect from his seniors, equals and juniors. He was awarded AVSM for his outstanding service.
    In his passing away the Corps has lost one of its great Signallers. We share the grief and loss of the bereaved family. May God rest the departed soul in peace.
    Lt Gen Harbhajan Singh
    Signal Officer-in-Chief and Senior Colonel Commandant, 1988-91
