  • Description

    A SQUADRON OF BRITAIN'S ROYAL TANK REGIMENT SAID FAREWELL TO BERLIN TODAY (THURSDAY) WITH A PARADE ALONG WEST BERLIN'S OLYMPIC STADIUM SQUARE. THE SQUADRON, SPECIALLY FORMED IN MARCH 1963 FOR DUTY IN BERLIN, WILL BE DISBANDED ON THE 16TH OF FEBRUARY.

    TAKING THE SALUTE AT THE PARADE WAS THE COMMANDER OF THE REGIMENT, MAJOR-GENERAL H.R.B. FOOTE, V.C., WHO HAD COME FROM ENGLAND ESPECIALLY FOR THE OCCASION. THE OFFICERS AND MEN OF THE SQUADRON ARE TO RETURN TO THEIR ORIGINAL REGIMENTS.

    THE DISBANDING OF THE SQUADRON IN NO WAY AFFECTS THE STRENGTH OF THE BRITISH FORCES IN BERLIN. IT'S BEING REPLACED BY "A" SQUADRON OF THE QUEEN'S OWN HUSSARS, WHOSE MEMBERS WILL BEGIN ARRIVING IN BERLIN IN EARLY FEBRUARY.

    BY THE 16TH, THE CHANGE-OVER IS EXPECTED TO BE COMPLETE, WITH MOST OF THE MEMBERS OF THE DISBANDED SQUADRON HAVING LEFT BERLIN.
