We have been told by a venerable spectator who had
seen all the historic London processions during the past seventy years that last Saturday's Victory march was the most impressive and the most perfectly ordered of them all. One episode which touched the heart most. poignantly was the saluting by all the commanders and their men of a laurelled cenotaph in Whitehall dedicated to "The Glorious Dead "—those who gave their lives that we might live in peace. The massed colours of the cavalry and infantry, borne in the van of the British troops, were astonishingly effective. All the martial traditions of our race seemed to be embodied in that sudden blaze of colour and gold.
