    PARADES AND A MILITARY EXHIBITION IN RAWALPINDI MARKED THE FIRST ANNIVERSARY OF LAST YEAR'S FIGHTING BETWEEN INDIA AND PAKISTAN.

    THERE WERE FLAGS AND MARCHING SOLDIERS, AND A MORE SOMBRE NOTE IN THE PRAYERS OF THANKSGIVING AND FOR THE MEN OF THE ARMED FORCES WHO DIED DURING LAST SEPTEMBER'S CLASH WITH INDIA.

    THE COMMANDER IN CHIEF, GENERAL MOHAMMAD MUSA, LED SOME OF HIS MEN IN PRAYER BEFORE HE CUT A CAKE AND OPENED AN EXHIBITION OF SOME OF THE EQUIPMENT OF WAR USED BY THE PAKISTANI ARMED FORCES.

    GENERAL MUSA WAS THE FIRST TO INSPECT THE AIRCRAFT, TANKS AND GUNS THAT WERE SHOWN TO THE PUBLIC. CINEMAS GAVE FREE SHOWS OF DOCUMENTARY FILMS ON THE FIGHTING, AND MONEY AND FOOD WERE DISTRIBUTED TO THE POOR.
