A. P. Battalion Band. Dergaon for his co operation in our function.
Annual Training Camp:— This camp was held at Barpujia about 3 miles away from Raha, Nowgaon. It lasted from 24th Dec. 57 to 6th Jan. 58. In order to participate in the said camp our Coy. proceeded with 2 N. C. C. Officers and the number of cadets attended this camp was the highest in Assam. Lt/Col. J. s. Paul, the then Commander circle Assam was happy enough for our strength. Our Coy. was the 'Best Coy." in Assam for its strength. The result of the certificate examination also was better than the other Coys. of Assam. 23 candidates out of 26 came out successful in the 'B' certificate examination. 5 candidates out of 6, came out successful in the 'C' certi- ficate examination. Besides, this beautiful result, our Coy. won several trophies in some sport competitions. This year among the “B” and "C" certificate candidates of our Coy, I was declared the "Best Cadet" in the "C" certifi cate examination. By enjoying a happy camp life there, we came back to Jorhat cheerfully with a load of some trophies. Thereafter, we prepared a Platoon with a view to present a Ceremonial Drill on last 26 Republic Day with military forces. Besides it, a group of cadets under U/o D. Barthakur was sent to Shillong for the last Republic Day parade. They earned a fame there. The main Platoon under my command joined here in this local place for the Republic Day parade and earned a reputation from both the military and the public.
Social Service Camp at Nayabunglow, Shillong:—During the last summer vacation of our college, this camp was held at Nayabung- low. Shillong from 24th May to Sth June '58. The camp was held with a view to perform the following social works -(i) construction of lake-path, foot-path and road (ii) Terracing works for the cultivation (ii) Distribution of milk. As this camp was held just on the eve of the Annual Examination of our College, so
only, 27 cadets under capt. M. C. Ghose went to take part in it. The excellent work done by our Coy. was highly praised by the distin- guished visitor of the camp, Sri B. P. Chaliha, the Chief Minister of Assam. Education Mi- nister Sri D. Sarmah and Finance Minister F. Ali were the other respectable guests of the camp. They encouraged the cadets by meet- ing them in the working areas. By finishing the allotted task with hard labour for the bene- fit of the hill people our Coy. came back to Jorhat with an ample fame and success.
Now, I am bound to put down these lines here that our Coy. was the only Coy. in Assam who participated in all the above mentioned camps without an Army Cuptain. Some dis- advantages and difficulties come to our N. C.C. Officers and to the cadets as well for want of a proper command of an Army Captain. So I hope, that this essential need of the cadets would kindly be fulfilled in no time. I hope again that a pure and real co-operation will exist in the midst of the cudets of higher rank to combat any situation and to achieve success in the years to come.
Lastly, I extend my best regards to Capt. Sherifulla, Capt. M. C. Ghose and 2nd/Lt. H. K. Mahanta for their beneficial suggestions which led us to success in varous spheres. At length, I conclude with a word of apology for the omissions and commissions of my duties.
Thanking you all
