  • Description

    More than 4,500 Japanese troops including artillery and tank units took part in a parade in Tokyo commemorating the fourth anniversary of the founding of the defence force, November 1.

    The defence force - which is not officially recognised as an army in Japan - displayed rumbling tanks and ponderous self-propelled held pieces through the capital.

    The force included naval and airforce units, and members of the women's auxiliary corps.

    The parade was reviewed by Prime Minister Kishi.
