SP's LandForces - - NEWS IN BRIEF -

The Ter­ri­to­rial Army cel­e­brated its 67th Rais­ing Day on Oc­to­ber 9, 2016. To mark the oc­ca­sion, an im­pres­sive pa­rade was held at the Army Pa­rade Ground in New Delhi. In a be­fit­ting cer­e­mony, Gen­eral Dal­bir Singh, the Chief of Army Staff, re­viewed the pa­rade and com­pli­mented the Ter­ri­to­rial Army fra­ter­nity for do­ing yeo­man service to the na­tion.

Ter­ri­to­rial Army was ex­em­pli­fied by a spec­tac­u­lar dis­play of their ca­pa­bil­i­ties dur­ing the pa­rade which was com­manded by Col Kr­ish­nandu Barker and com­prised of 10 march­ing contin­gents, 15 bands and three tableaus of Rail­way Engi­neers, Oil Sec­tor & Eco­log­i­cal Ter­ri­to­rial Army units.

Ter­ri­to­rial Army sol­diers, re­splen­dent in their reg­i­men­tal at­tires, marched with mil­i­tary pre­ci­sion to the mar­tial tunes dis­play­ing their im­pec­ca­ble stan­dards and en­vi­able bear­ing with en­thu­si­asm and zeal. Tableaus of Eco­log­i­cal Task Force, Rail­way Engi­neers and the Oil Sec­tor units show­cased the valu­able con­tri­bu­tion of the De­part­men­tal Ter­ri­to­rial Army units to the na­tion in the fields of en­vi­ron­ment con­ser­va­tion and in main­te­nance of es­sen­tial ser­vices like rail­ways and oil pro­duc­tion and sup­ply.

The pa­rade was wit­nessed by other civil and mil­i­tary dig­ni­taries, in­clud­ing mil­i­tary and de­fence at­tachés from friendly for­eign coun­tries. Sev­eral prom­i­nent per­son­al­i­ties have come for­ward to join the cit­i­zens’ Army and have not only en­riched it or­gan­i­sa­tion­ally but have con­trib­uted im­mensely in en­hanc­ing its im­age amongst the youth of the na­tion. Ter­ri­to­rial Army has grown into a force with mul­ti­di­men­sional ca­pa­bil­i­ties.

The Chief of Army Staff ap­plauded the good work done by the Ter­ri­to­rial Army per­son­nel in var­i­ous fields and wished all ranks and their fam­i­lies good luck for a glo­ri­ous fu­ture.
