Col TN Baba: 14th Reunion and Centenary Celebrations

Corps of Signals and 14th Reunion Centenary Celebrations
1 STC Jabalpur 12th Feb to 15th Feb 2011

My dear Friends,
I attended the 14th Reunion and Centenary Celebrations of our Corps at Jabalpur from 12th to 15th Feb 2011. The Photoslideshow is as above- click on image for enlarged Photo slides. Some highlights of the events are given below.
  • Travelled from Nizamuddin to Jabalpur by train on the 11th Feb. Looked after by reps from the Corps right from Nizamuddin Station with help in boarding the train, Chai, Pani Snacks, Dinner etc. there were about 25 officers travelling in the same train with lots of Hai! Hai! with friends.
  • Reception and accommodation at Jabalpur was very nice on the 12th morning. The same day went on organized trip to BheraGhat. Met many other friends who had come in earlier/staying at different messes. Did boating and rode the cable way.
  • Attended all events viz., Passing out parade, Inauguration of Girls Hostel, Exhibition Hockey Match, Cultural Show, Sky Diving, Martial Art Demo, DR Display, Silent Drill,Band Concert, Commemoration Ceremony, Barakhana, Memorial Service & Mercury Nite.
  • Every event was very well organised and conducted with clockwork precision and grace. While all events were excellent, I must mention that the parade and the Band concert were remarkable. Most memorable event was the Memorial Service at the War memorial. It was organised with great thought and was executed in a solemn manner. Many eyes were moist during and after the event. Befitting way to remember "those who gave their today for our tomorrow".
  • Among YO 48 Gp, Chats, Madhav, and Laxi were there. From SODE 24 A Narinder Dhand and Sharat Anand were there.
    Brig S K Pillai, VSM, Comdt 1 STC and all Officers, JCOs, ORs, & Recruits deserve a very Big Salute for having organised the celebrations of this magnitude at Jabalpur so well.
    I, as a veteran who hung his uniform 17 years ago, feel that the Corps has not only grown leaps and bounds in keeping up with technology, but also has excelled itself in the organising ability. I feel previleged & honoured to have been invited to be part of this historic event in Jabalpur.
    Best Regards,
    Col T N Baba (Veteran)
