As part of Navy Day 2020 celebrations, ‘Beating Retreat’ was organised on 04 December 2020 at INS Valsura. With the objective to ensure wider reach and following COVID-19 safety protocols, the ceremony was broadcasted live to residents of the establishment and Jamnagar city by popular TV channels and on-line portals of the town.
In addition to soul touching performances played by the Naval Band at the Beating Retreat, Continuity Drill, PT and Mashaal Display also formed part of the evening events. The Continuity Drill showcasing the adept handling of weapons and the Mashaal Display showcasing the physical fitness and courage of the Officer and Sailor trainees left the audience spell bound.
The military tunes played by the Valsura Band including the distant chimes of tube bells created a mesmerising ambience and enthralled the audience before the Naval Ensign was lowered at the Sunset ceremony.
