  • Description

    MORE THAN 100,000 BERLINERS PACKED THE OLYMPIC STADIUM YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) TO WATCH THE WEST BERLIN POLICE FORCE SHOW. THIS ANNUAL EVENT ALWAYS ATTRACTS AN ENTHUSIASTIC AUDIENCE, AND THIS YEAR THEY WERE AGAIN THRILLED BY DISPLAYS OF SKILL FROM MOBILE POLICE, DOG-PATROLS AND ATHLETES.

    THE PROGRAMME OPENED WITH A IMPRESSIVE PARADE OF POLICE FORCE UNITS MARCHING-PAST TO THE MUSIC OF MASSED BANDS, AMONG THEM BRITISH AND AMERICAN BANDS. AN EVER-POPULAR ITEM, THE MOTOR-CYCLE DISPLAY, DELIGHTED THE AUDIENCE AS RIDERS PERFORMED GYMNASTICS AT SPEED. THEN CAME A DEMONSTRATION OF THE SWIFT-MOVING OPERATION FOLLOWING AN ALERT.

    TOWARDS THE END OF THE SHOW THE BERLIN POLICEMEN PERFORMED THE OLD TRADITIONAL PRUSSIAN ARMY TATTOO LIT BY HUNDREDS OF FLAMING TORCHES.
