Lieutenant General KJ Singh, on July 31 relinquished his command from the position of General Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Western Command.
Saying farewell in glorious style, Lt. Gen KJ Singh returned ‘home’ to the unit where he was first commissioned on top of a vintage T-55 tank, marked as ZX 1685.
He was associated with the Indian Army for more than 50 years, out of which he spent 39 years in commissioned service.
It was just two years ago on August 1, 2014, that Lt. Gen. Singh took over the charge of Western Command.
In the span of 24 months, he played an instrumental role in giving an impetus to the operational preparedness of Western Command. During these two years, he also tested new concepts like the application of ‘Two Strike Corps‘ which helps in ensuring ‘Decisive Victory’.
