Troops of the Security Forces - Jaffna (SF-J) commenced
mending of the Durayappah Stadium soon after the Army Tattoo 2012
concluded on Sunday (25).
On instructions of Commander SF-J Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe,
51 Division has sent extra troops with water bowsers and other necessary
equipment to renovate the fence around the ground and to water the
grass. A few extra gates had to be created for administrative purposes
of Tattoo troops and the convenience of the large crowd present.
All those are being put back in proper order by the soldiers of
Sri Lanka Electrical and Mechanical Engineer Regiment.
Cleaning the ground and the surrounding has already been done. The
pavilion has completely been painted by the 512 Brigade troops giving
it a better look. As a gesture of goodwill and in appreciation of
cooperation given by the Jaffna Municipal Council to make the programme
a total success, Headquarters SF-J has decided to construct a VIP
washroom at the Stadium soon, which remained a long-lasting requirement.
The Army Tattoo which attracted massive crowds daily was held from
23rd to 25th March at the Durayappah Stadium.
