Afterwards, 17 selected families of other ranks and civil staff received symbolic contract papers after the short video clip was presented to the gathering which was made up of SLACAL-SVB activities carried out during the past year.

Reaching the culmination of the day's programme, Mrs Lakmali Darmawansha delivered the vote of thanks and a special memento was presented to the day’s chief guest by the chairperson, SLACAL-SVB.
