Date of Issue: January 20, 2009

Indian Naval Ship Trishul, a state-of-the-art multi-role Stealth Frigate, was affiliated to the JAT Regiment, one of the most decorated infantry regiments of the Indian Army, in a splendid ceremony held onboard INS Trishul at the Naval Dockyard in Mumbai on January 20, 2009.

A few previous instances of such affiliations between units of the Army and the Navy include the affiliation between INS Viraat with Garhwal Rifles, INS Rajput with Rajput Regiment, INS Mumbai with Maratha Light Infantry, INS Talwar with 16 Cavalry and more recently the INS Beas with Grenadiers.

INS Trishul was commissioned on Jun 25, 2003, as the second of the three 4000 tonne stealth frigates acquired by the Navy.
The ship, with an impressive array of 21st century weapons and sensors, remains a frontline man-of-war of the Navy.

I am thankful to Mr. Jigar Desai, Mumbai for sending me this Special Cover.
