    Bunch of pictures from the Dutch army:












    Induction and oath-taking ceremony in Tilburg of new members of the Dutch Army's 17 Batallion Guards Fusiliers Prinses Irene (17 GFPI), part of 13 Mechanised Brigade. The batallion is the successor formation to the world war 2 Princess Irene Brigade, and as such, its members wear the 'invasion lanyard' originally awarded to members of the brigade who participated in the Normandy landings. According to tradition, the lanyard must be wetted by taking a dive.
