    I have a few photos of them, but the Foreign Legion contingent started parading just at the edge of the VIP/invited guests area, so we only saw their backs.

    I found these pictures on the homepage of the Austrian Armed Forces. (pictures: bundesheer.at)

    Training the march:

    A great parade. Very cool idea with the other Armies.

    Can someone tell which European units participated in the march, because I seem to be unable to find that piece of information.

    Well i know for certain that my Country's delegation( The Netherlands) consisted of 28 troops of the 42th tankbattallion and ten troops of the Maurechaussee(military constabulary) It's a bit small IMHO. You should see the day of the little princes parade or a royal burial.

    Please do! I'd like to see the whole thing in full if possible. Atlantic Friend gave us some very nice links, but I'm unfortunately unable to copy/paste those links to a friend. Besides, I'd like to see the whole things myself.

    I can't believe it that this was perhaps one of the best and most unique parades in years, and not much can be found. Maybe someone will place vids on Youtube? I have no problem re-linking from that site.

    Combat engineers of the Foreign Legion. Axes and and leather a****s are part of their traditional parade uniform.

    Awesome parade.
    I hope it will become a tradition for all EU-countries to parade togheter like this.
