The 55 Division based at Veththilaikerny celebrated its 16th birthday with a series of religious, social and military activities conducted at various locations last week.

Apart from formal military functions, the Division Headquarters had organized community welfare projects for civilians in the area. On 15th December, officers and other ranks serving under the 55 Division donated blood to Jaffna Teaching Hospital blood bank for patients waiting to undergo surgeries. Nearly 250 soldiers gave blood during the one day blood donation camp.

At the same time, the Division Headquarters had made arrangements to donate school bags, books and shoes for 49 students studying at Kevil Government Tamil Mixed school on 17th December. A Pirith chanting ceremony, a guard of honour accorded to the General Officer Commanding and all ranks get-together followed the events organized with guidance of General Officer Commanding 55 Division Brigadier Ajith Wijesinghe.

A grand musical show held at Division Headquarters premises marked the culmination of celebrations on 22nd December.

The 55 Division gave an immense contribution to liberate the coastal belt from Nagar Kovil up to Mullaithivu during the Humanitarian War. A large number of soldiers of the 55 Division made a lot of sacrifices to safe guard the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the country.
