  • Description

    Belgian troops and armour paraded through Brussels today (Friday) in a show of military strength which included several new features. Service chiefs and NATO Supreme Allied Commander, Europe, General Lyman L. Lemnitzer, watched the massive parade and an impressive fly-past by the Belgian Air Force.

    King Baudouin and Queen Fabiola arrived for the parade and talked to veterans of the 1914-18 war.

    The fly-past included helicopters, "flying boxcars", and F 104 G Starfighters.

    Included in the military parade for the first time this year were the new "Leopard" armoured personnel carriers.

    The colourful uniforms and competent dressage of the cavalry provided one of the most popular features of the annual display.
