Last weeks VE-day parade in Moscow was an historic occassion, not the least because it was the first major parade of military hardware since Nov. 1990.

 

It was also historic for another reason, it was the first time that foreign soldiers have participated in the parade.  Thus we were treated to the unusual, and spectacular, sight of the UK’s 1st Bn. The Welsh Guards marching across Red Square in their red tunics and bear-skin hats.
