This clip runs on for some time, I take my hat off to those having to salute all the way across Red square. The officers are  a bit slack they all seem not to be able to lift their legs as high as the other ranks following. Their REME seem to have sorted out the transport not one broke down, also are the 8 wheeled vehicles carrying any thing ?  No signs of BRDM’s PT76 or T72 they must have sold them all to Iraq

Certainly worth a second look but appears to be mainly concerned with the 1980's/1990's not the immediate post war period which is of interest to Steve and I (and doubtless others)
