Navy gets US Courageous


By Sunil Jayasiri / DM


The Navy's strength was boosted yesterday with the arrival of the coastguard cutter Courageous gifted by the United States.


Chief of Defence Staff and Navy Commander Daya Sandagiri addressing a ceremony to mark the arrival of the vessel, said the Navy's surveillance capacity would be significantly increased.


The Courageous now renamed P621 came to the Colombo harbour yesterday after a 39-day journey from the US.


Thanking the US for its gesture of goodwill and support, Rear Admiral Sandagiri said the navy would now be more effective in tackling illegal sea activities.
