As a part of Navy week celebrations 2021, Beating Retreat and Sunset Ceremony were conducted at INS Valsura on 04 Dec 2021. 'Beating Retreat' marks a centuries old military tradition, when the troops ceased fighting, sheathed their arms and withdrew from the battlefield and returned to their camps at sunset at the sounding of the retreat.

In addition to soul touching performances played by the Naval Band, Continuity Drill, PT and Mashaal Display also formed part of the evening events. Various tunes such as Colonel Bogey, Vande Mataram, Jai Bharati, Sare Jahan se Achchha, played by the Naval Band enthralled the audience before the Naval Ensign was lowered.

The spectacular Continuity Drill and the physical training acrobats demonstrated by the Officer and Sailor trainees of the unit left the audience spell bound. Several eminent dignitaries from Jamnagar and uniformed personnel from the Indian Navy, Indian Army and Indian Air Force witnessed the event.
