    Background: KUWAIT NATIONAL DAY WAS CELEBRATED IN THE PERSIAN GULF SHEIKHDOM JUNE 19 WITH A CULTURAL AND MILITARY PARADE THROUGH KUWAIT CITY BEFORE THE RULES, SHEIKH ABDULLA AS SALIM AI SUBAN.

    DURING THE WHOLE OF THE PREVIOUS WEEK KUWAITIS HAD BEEN PREPARING FOR THE FIRST ANNIVERSARY OF THEIR FULL INDEPENDENCE, AND IN THE EARLY MORNING OF NATIONAL DAY THEY CROWDED THE PARADE ROUTE.

    AFTER A SPEECH BY THE RULER, THE PARADE BEGAN. LED BY FLAG-CARRYING REPRESENTATIVES, UNITS OF YOUTH MOVEMENTS MARCHED PROUDLY PAST THE SALUTING DAIS. THE MILITARY UNITS WERE GREETED WITH LOUD CHEERING AND IT WAS OBVIOUS THAT THE KUWAITI FORCES HAD BEEN CONSIDERABLY STRENGTHENED AGAINST ANOTHER SUCH CONTINGENCY AS OCCURRED LAST JUNE, WHEN IRAQI PRIME MINISTER KASSEM'S CLAIM TO THE TERRITORY BROUGHT BRITISH AND ARAB LEAGUE FORCES IN THE REPEL A POSSIBLE INVASION.

    TANKS, ARMOURED CARS, ARTILLERY, HELICOPTERS AND OTHER AIRCRAFT, MANY PURCHASED FROM BRITAIN, TOOK THREE HOURS TO PASS THE SALUTING DIAS. ONE INFANTRY UNIT TOOK A FEW MINUTES. THEY RAN PAST.
