Sri Lanka Navy's Arrow boats were re-named 'Cedric' in honour of the
co-founder of the Sri Lanka Navy Special Boat Squadron (SBS), the late
Commander (VNF) Cedric Martenstyn NVX 5068, on his 70th birth
anniversary. The SBS was raised by the present Commander of the Navy, Vice Admiral
Ravindra Wijegunaratne and Commander Cedric Martenstyn in October 1993
in line with the Royal Navy's Special Boat Squadron and the US Navy
SEALS Special Boat Unit.
