Members of the Sri Lanka Navy who made supreme sacrifices in the task to safeguard the motherland are remembered.
A special Pinkama to bestow merits on the naval ratings who sacrificed their lives in the battle against terrorism was held at the Naval Base in Trincomalee. Alms were offered to 50 Buddhist Monks after all night Pirith chanting. A notable feature was the conduct of the almsgiving Pinkama in the Sayura vessel of the Navy. Another commemoration ceremony in parallel to this event was held at the Trincomalee Naval base under the patronage of the Navy Commander Admiral Wasantha Karannagoda.
