The Sri Lanka Sinha Regiment (SLSR) at Ambepussa celebrated the third birthday of its dearly loved mascot 'Elsa', the lioness cub at its Regimental Headquarters on January 22.

SLSR Centre Commandant, Brigadier Dammika Dissanayake, Officers and Other Ranks including its caretakers were present at the event. An artificially-designed 'meat' cake of about two feet in height, stuffed with pieces of meat, instead of icing sugar and wheat flour, added the symbolic 'birthday party' atmosphere. The Centre Commandant fed the lioness cub with the first piece of meat to the singing of "Happy Birthday."
