  • Description

    THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE, IN LIGHT SUMMER CLOTHES, MANY OF THEM WAVING FLAGS, CRAMMED THE STREETS OF NIJMEGAN IN HOLLAND ON FRIDAY TO GREET 14,000 MARCHERS WHO HAVE BEEN TAKING PART IN THE 49TH INTERNATIONAL FOUR-DAY MARCH. THE MARCHERS CAME FROM MANY LANDS. AT FIRST IT SEEMED AS THOUGH THE MARCH WAS LIKELY TO END THE END THE WAY IT BEGAN - IN STEADY DRIZZLE, BUT AT THE LAST MOMENT THE SUN CAME OUT, AND THE MARCHERS, DRESSED IN A VARIETY OF COLOURFUL UNIFORMS, WALKED PROUDLY THROUGH THE STREETS OF THE DUTCH TOWN.

    DURING THE THREE PREVIOUS DAYS, THE MARCHERS INCLUDING MILITARY CONTINGENTS HAD TRUDGED MISERABLY THROUGH THE DRIZZLE WHICH BLANKETED MUCH OF HOLLAND. THEY HAD COVERED ABOUT 50 KILOMETRES. HOWEVER, WITH BRIGHT SUNSHINE FOR THE FINAL TRIUMPHANT MARCH INTO NIJMEGAN, THE MARCHERS TIDIED UNIFORMS AND POLISHED BUTTONS SO AS TO MAKE A COLOURFUL ENTRY INTO THE TOWN.

    THE VISITORS CAME FROM BRITAIN, THE UNITED STATES, BELGIUM, CANADA, DENMARK, FRANCE AUSTRIA, WEST GERMANY, ISRAEL, LUXEMBOURG, NORWAY AND SWITZERLAND.
