Beating Retreat #WordlessWednesday
Nothing can be more soul stirring than a Military parade .
As a Naval brat I had seen many a Naval parade and didn’t know how much I missed them till I saw this jaw dropping Beating Retreat and Tattoo on Sunday.
The Western Naval Command is celebrating its Golden Anniversary had three performances of this grand ceremony .
The one we attended was specifically or the public and many school children were invited to watch. I’m sure they were impressed and thrilled with the music, the marching , the drills and the daredevil realistic rescue operations.
Carried out with military precision, my heart stopped when I saw the simulated terrorist attack. Ironically it was at the same place that had seen this awful tragedy 10 years ago.
Seeing these brave men in white, I felt a surge of joy and gratitude that thanks to them our shores are safe.
