  • Description

    Commander-in-Chief US Army Europe, General Clyde D. Eddleman, was filmed in Bonn May 26 as he paid his first official visit to West German Defence Minister Franz Josef Strauss and Federal German Army Inspector-General Heusinger. Accompanied by high-ranking American officers he was welcomed in front of the Defence Ministry by West German Navy Brig.-Gen.Pannitzki. As the General inspected a Bundeswehr guard of honour flags were at half-past as a sign of mourning for American Secretary or State John Foster Dulles.

    Formerly Commander of 7th US Army Germany, General Eddleman took over from General H.I. Hodes April 1 as C-in-C US Army Europe and Commander of NATO Central Army Group.

    General Eddleman has already earned himself the reputation of a strict disciplinarian. One of his measures to boost US troop discipline came into force May 22 when US Headquarters in Europe announced that American soldiers stationed in Europe would in future be forbidden to consume alcohol during duty hours.
