  • Description

    Saturday was the fifteenth anniversary of the signing of the North Atlantic Treaty. The occasion was marked by a parade at the headquarters of the Norther Army Group and Second Allied Tactical Air Force at Rheindahlen in West Germany.

    Guests of honour at the ceremony were the West German Defence Minister, Herr von Hassel; the Belgian Embassy Counsellor, M. Gerard; the Canadian Ambassador, Mr. Starnes; the Netherlands Ambassador, Baron von Ittersum; and the British Ambassador, Sir Frank Roberts.
