  • Description

    Visnews filmed the Plains of Abraham outside Quebec June 23 as Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh visited the historical spot to review Canadian troops.

    At the parade ground the Queen and Prince Philip were received by Me???-General George Vanier, Colonel of the Royal 22nd Re??? French Canada's illustrious fighting unit. During the ceremony, Her Majesty presented new colours to the regiment.

    It was two hundred years ago that General Wolfe's Highlanders hauled their guns up the cliffside on to the Plains of Abraham, vanquished French General Montcalm's army and secured Canada's future as a British dominion.

    In the evening the Royal couple returned on Board the Britannia to sail for Montreal. On Friday June 26 Queen Elizabeth, together with President Aisenhower, will officially open the St. Lawrence Seaway.
