Belgian Cenotaph Parade, 2022

Posted on by royvickery |

In 1934 King George V granted permission for Belgium to hold an annual parade at the Cenotaph in Whitehall, London.  This is held on the Saturday before Belgian National Day, 21 July, in 2022  Saturday 16 July.

The ceremony, which was watched by many (mainly Belgian?) members of the public, started at about 10.50 a.m. and continued for approximately 50 minutes.  After a parade of various Belgian and British military units, a number of Belgian and British dignitaries laid wreaths at the south side of the memorial, before all the participants paraded off  towards Trafalgar Square.
