    Background: President Nasser, in celebrations this month marking the second anniversary of the United Arab Republic, reviewed boys and girls in uniform February 3 at Gezira, Egypt, the first day of the UAR Youth Festival.

    After a parade of girl-cadets on bicycles, cadets re-enacted a scene entitled 'Battle of Port Said', to symbolise the UAR's struggle against "Imperialists" - a struggle oft-quoted by the President. The day ended with a march-past.
