Sri Lanka Navy has made history by assigning its first group of female naval personnel to sea duties. Accordingly, the first group of naval women including two lady officers and five women sailors were attached to SLNS Gajabahu on Thursday (May 11).

These lady officers and women sailors sharpened their practical and theoretical knowledge on navigation, seamanship, engineering, electricity, combat medicine, firefighting and communication by taking part in the Inshore Patrol Craft Handling Foundation Course in October 2022 at Naval and Maritime Academy ad Naval Dockyard Trincomalee.
