Kohima 75th Anniversary

Five KET Trustees travelled to Kohima to commemorate the 75th Anniversary on the 4th April 2019. 

The government of Nagaland organised a wonderful opening ceremony full of Naga culture and music. The whole ceremony can be viewed below.

 

The message of Remembrance, Reconciliation and Rebirth was well illustrated by the speakers, the British High Commissioner, Sir Dominic Asquith; The Japanese Ambassador, Mr Kenji Hiramatsu, The Chief Minister of Nagaland, Mr Neiphiu Rio, The Chief Secretary, Mr Temjen Toy and the Head of the Kohima Village Council, Eno Medo Keretsu.

KET was honoured to be given two places on the programme when Sylvia May was invited to speak about the origins of the Kohima Educational Trust and Dr P Ngully, was asked to give the closing remarks.

We were delighted that many KET supporters also made the journey to Kohima to join in the commemoration events and to present scholarships to students. You can see the details of our 2019 scholarships here.

The following day we were all invited to the ceremony in the War cemetery organised by the Assam Rifles in conjunction with the CWGC. Their Vice Chairman, Sir Tim Lawrence gave a speech and we were royally entertained by the Assam Pipes and Drums Band. ( pictures and videos available! )
