    Beating Retreat and Sunset Ceremony organised at INS Valsura

    As part of Navy Day 2019 celebrations, ‘Beating Retreat’ and ‘Sunset Ceremony’ were organized at INS Valsura on 04 Dec in a grand and befitting manner. ‘Beating retreat’ marks the centuries old military tradition, when the troops ceased fighting, sheathed their arms, withdrew from battlefield and returned to the camps at sunset at the sounding of the Retreat. In addition soul touching performances by the Naval Band, Continuity Drill, Physical Training and Mashaal Display also held as part of the event.

    Continuity Drill depicting the adept handling of weapons, virtue, discipline, attention to detail and precision mesmerized the audience. Physical training acrobats over the vaulting horse and vault through the fire showcasing the physical fitness and courage of the Navy personnel also left the audience spell bound.

    The military tunes played by the Valsura Band including the distant chimes of tube bells created mesmerizing ambience and enthralled the audience before the Naval Ensign was lowered. To inspire and encourage the youth of Gujarat  to join the Armed Forces, a band performance by 08 Gujarat Naval Unit NCC from Jamnagar was also included for the first time as part of the ceremony.

    INS Valsura, Jamnagar is a premier training institute of Indian Navy which is being commanded by Commodore C Raghuram VSM. Eminent dignitaries from Jamnagar, uniformed and non uniformed personnel of the unit witnessed all the events. Satish Patel, Jamnagar Municipal Commissioner was the chief guest of the event.
