I was there!
"Your clip reminded
me that I was there! I remember standing
somewhere on the north side at the east end of Princes Street and watching
the parade go by.
I seem to remember being a bit critical of the
marching style of some nations as they seemed a bit sloppy compared with
the British army. My prejudice was probably based on my experiences as the
son of an RSM."
"I think the
contingent wearing cloaks were French Spahis and the men swinging their
arms across their bodies were, I think, Poles but no doubt someone will be
able to identify the various styles with more confidence."
