Another rehearsal for Victory Parade in Red Square
Another rehearsal for the 65th Victory Parade has been held in Moscow. This is for the first time that servicemen of the CIS countries, Poland, and also of the United States, the UK and France, which were the Soviet Union’s main Allied Nations, have marched across Red Square. During the Second World War the United States and Great Britain helped the USSR with supplies of arms and military hardware, and brought the Victory nearer by opening the Second Front. Taking part in the rehearsal were Poland’s company of honour guards, officers of the legendary French air squadron Normandie-Nieman, a battalion of a US Infantry regiment, the main band of Britain’s Royal Air Force and the servicemen of the First Welsh Regiment, which liberated France in autumn 1944.
