    THE ACTING CHIEF OF THE GHANA DEFENCE STAFF, MAJOR-GENERAL A.K. OCRAN TOOK THE SALUTE AT THE PASSING-OUT PARADE OF NAVAL RECRUITS AT THE TEMA NAVAL BASE LAST TUESDAY (MAY 20TH).

    THE RECRUITS HAD JUST COMPLETED THE 35TH RECRUITS COURSE ORGANISED BY THE GHANA NAVY. THE 36 YOUNG MEN HAD STUDIED SEAMANSHIP, NAVAL ORGANISATION, BASIC DAMAGE-CONTROL, FIRE-FIGHTING AND PARADE GROUND DRILL.

    THE GENERAL INSPECTED THE SAILORS BEFORE TAKING THE SALUTE AS THEY MARCHED PAST.

    LATER HE TOLD THEM THAT THE COMPLETION OF RECRUIT COURSE WAS JUST THE BEGINNING OF THEIR NAVAL CAREERS, AND HE URGED THEM TO REMEMBER THAT AS SERVICEMEN, THEY MUST ALWAYS OBEY ORDERS. THEY HAD PASSED OUT TO JOIN THE NAVY OF GHANA IN THE SERVICE OF THE NATION, AND HE REMINDED THEM THAT THEY SHOULD BEAR THIS IN MIND. HE COMMENDED THEIR SMARTNESS AND SAID THAT THE STANDARD OF THE GHANA NAVY WAS AS HIGH AS ANY IN THE WORLD.

    MAJOR-GENERAL OCRAN PRESENTED PRIZES TO THE TWO MOST OUTSTANDING RECRUITS IN THE COURSE. T. ANARFO WAS THE SMARTEST RECRUIT, AND M.K. OSEI WAS ADJUDGED THE BEST RECRUIT IN ACADEMIC SUBJECTS.
