Vice-Admiral Anup Singh, Flag Officer Commanding-in-Chief of the Eastern Naval Command at Visakhapatnam, made his farewell visit to the Southern Naval Command.

The Vice-Admiral is retiring from the Navy on October 31 after 38 years of service. Commissioned in July 1973, Vice-Admiral Singh has commanded four ships of different classes and capabilities. He was also the commissioning commanding officer of INS Veer, a missile vessel, and INS Delhi, the Navy's first indigenously designed and built destroyer. He also skippered the naval yacht ‘Samudra' as it crossed the Pacific during her around-the-world voyage in 1989. Vice-Admiral Singh will unveil a replica of INS Delhi installed at the Naval Base and built by Naval Ship Repair Yard here, on Friday.
