  • Description

    GENERAL LOUIS BOBOZO, DEPUTY COMMANDER OF THE CONGOLESE (LEOPOLDVILLE) NATIONAL ARMY, IS ON A THREE-DAY VISIT TO LONDON. TODAY (WEDNESDAY) HE DROVE TO THE ROYAL MILITARY ACADEMY AT SANDHURST, SOUTH OF LONDON, TO HAVE A LOOK AROUND. HE ALSO MET TWO CONGOLESE OFFICER CADETS TRAINING THERE.

    ON THIS COOL, BLUSTERY MORNING, IT WAS A FAR CRY FROM THE HEAT AND CIVIL WAR IN THE GENERAL'S COUNTRY. SANDHURST IS BRITAIN'S TOP MILITARY ACADEMY, WHERE MANY OF THE CADETS ARE FROM OVERSEAS. TWO CONGOLESE ARE CURRENTLY TRAINING THERE: OFFICER CADETS R. KAYEMBE AND W. KUMPANYA.

    AFTER MEETING THEM, GENERAL BOBOZO TOURED THE ACADEMY'S MUSEUM, WHERE HE SAW A DISPLAY OUTLINING 300 YEARS OF BRITISH MILITARY HISTORY: MODEL INDIAN ARMY FIGURES, BADGES, PRICELESS PICTURES AND A VICTORIA CROSS - BRITAIN'S HIGHEST DECORATION FOR VALOUR.

    FINALLY, A VISIT TO THE FARADAY SCIENCE HALL TO SEE SOME OF THE ARMY'S MORE TECHNICAL EXHIBITS - BOTH OLD AND NEW.
