    Background: Parades were held throughout Japan, Nov 1, to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Japanese Self-Defence Forces. In the ten years since its inauguration, the force has raised 240,000 men under arms. This includes an army of 170,000 a navy with 30,000 men and a 100,000-ton fleet, and an air force of 1,000 aircraft manned by 40,000 personnel.

    At the Meiji Shrine Outer Garden in Tokyo, a parade of army and naval personnel was attended by Premier Ikeda and Government Ministers. During the parade jet and prop-driven aircraft flew over the route. Most of the arms and equipment on show were made in the United States.

    About 40,000 troops took part in this, the biggest post-war parade held in Japan. On show were about 40 American made tanks and sixty mobile cannons. More than 1,000 American made jet fight fighters took part in the fly-past 1/2.
