    I was very excited in seeing this clip as I was on this parade, September 1975. Being just a couple of months away from finishing my National Service with the RAF Regiment. I was on the rear line, in the middle and can't be sure if I am in view in any of the shots. The ceremony was held in one of the hangers, because it was raining very hard and the German Air Force Sabre Jets were lined up outside. I must admit, I never noticed it was being filmed. A very nice surprise and reminder of the day.
