A memorial oration as a tribute to the late Instructor Commander M.G.S. Perera, on his birth anniversary titled “Instructor Extraordinary” was delivered by the Instructor Lieutenant Commander (Retired) Somasiri Devendra on June 2, 2017 at the Admiral Somathilake Dissanayake Auditorium, Naval Headquarters, Colombo.   


This was followed by the launch of the book: Teacher to the Navy compiled by his son Dr. Ajith C.S. Perera, along with its electronic version [goo.gl/qcduyX] by the Commander of the Navy.  

 
It was organised by the Naval and Maritime Academy Trincomalee (NMA) as part of its golden jubilee anniversary.   
The timely event was arranged in recognition and sincere appreciation of the dedicated outstanding contributions and the untiring efforts put in over 23 years to the Navy by the late Commander Perera – NMA’s founding father and first Commandant – firstly in the establishment of the formal Naval & Maritime training in the then Ceylon Navy (in June 1952), thereafter turning an almost dying Navy (in the mid-60s) into the bold and victorious Navy as it stands today and thereafter until the end of his life, to the country.   


It was held in the presence of a distinguished gathering of elite personnel, most retired senior Naval Officers who had been nurtured and trained by Commander M.G.S. Perera over the period (1950 – 1970), starting with Admiral Deshamanya Basil Goonasekera and including the first two Commanders of the Navy produced by the NMA from its very first batch of officer cadets, Admiral Cecil Tissera (1997) and Admiral Daya Sandagiri (2001).   


Also present on this occasion were Admiral (Rtd.) Mohan R. Samarasekera, the 20th Commander of the Army, General (Rtd.) Daya Rathnayaka, the Chief of Staff of Sri Lanka Navy Rear Admiral Sirimevan Ranasinghe, the Deputy Chief of Staff of Sri Lanka Navy Rear Admiral Neil Rosairo and flag rank officers of the Navy.   


Vice Admiral Ravindra Wijegunaratne, the present, 8th consecutive Commander of the Navy produced by the NMA was the Chief Guest.
