Card from Sri Lanka - SLNS Sayurala (P623)

Received this postcard as a surprise from blogger friend, Mr. Ravindra Ratnapala, Colombo, Sri Lanka.

The card shows the flag of the Sri Lankan Navy and Offshore Patrol Vessel (OPV) SLNS Sayurala (meaning: sea waves), with pennant number P623. It was named as the CGS Vigraha (39), a Vikram class offshore patrol craft of the Indian Coast Guard. She was in service in Sri Lanka from 2009 to 2011, during the Sri Lankan Civil War.
