MADRAS Sappers was once again adjudged best marching contingent among all the Service contingents during this year’s Republic Day Parade.
The Contingent, with every soldier of the height 193 cm and above, had toiled hard over many months to earn the coveted honour.
Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Tuesday presented the Best Marching Contingent Trophies to the Madras Sappers and the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) who participated at the Republic Day Parade 2017 at the historic Rajpath, New Delhi.
True to their motto of ‘SARVATRA’, the Madras Engineer Group has always distinguished themselves in full spectrum of professional activities ranging from operations to ceremonial events throughout the glorious history of 236 years, be it supporting fighting troops during operations or claiming the Best Marching Contingent every time they participated.
Keeping their rich traditions alive, Madras Sappers once again claimed the ‘Best Marching Contingent Trophy’ both in Army Day and Republic Day Parades 2017.
