Photo of the Queens Birthday Parade in 1961 (you'd be 2 then so probably don't remember it) Hope it is of interest.

I went back to Berlin 60 years later!  -- I was there in the RAMC in BMH Berlin. I went around with a 1953 British 'Ensign Selfix '  camera 16/20 Model II. In 2017 60 years later I went around to some of the SAME sights with another 1953 Ensign Selfix Model I and tried to take the same photos ! I had not realised how all the trees had grown up !. In 1957 I could see the Reichstag from the Brandenburg Gate easily as all the Tiergarten Trees were only about 3 foot tall after the Russian Shelling-- now there is a huge Forest obscuring the view -- i got lost trying to find the Reichstag !
