    Government Officials, Religious leaders of all denominations, senior officers of the Army, Air Force and Police and more than 2000 members of the general public attended the ceremony at the SFHQ-KLN.

    Recruit M.S Rubini, who scored the highest aggregates in all subjects during the training, was adjudged as the Best Recruit for her outstanding performance in the course.


    Recruit J. Thuvaraka received the trophy as the Best Woman Soldier with physical fitness. In addition instructors were also awarded trophies for the Best Platoon Commander, Best Platoon Sergeant and Best Section Commander. (ST/SL Army)
