  • Description

    A grand military parade, attended by King Baudouin, took place in Brussels July 21, Belgium's annual National Day. The parade was part of the National Day celebrations.

    Fifty different military units - including tanks - paraded under Brussels' Are du Cinquantenaire and marched past the stand where the King took the salute. At King Baudouin's side stood the Belgian Minister Of Defence Gilson. Aircraft roared above the saluting base.

    Cadets of the Royal Military Collage looked particularly smart in their new parade uniform, presented to them only very recently by their Commandant, General Van Vreckom.
