    The league of Petty Officers in the Netherlands celebrated their 60th anniversary with a grand Army and Airforce Day at the Hague today, June 10th.

    There was a wide ranging display of military weapons, which drew interested crowds of onlookers, among whom were Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands and other high-ranking officers.
