The Victory Parade - Part 1 - A Military Band And The SMI Army Cadet Force Contingent
The largest of the Victory Parades took place, not unexpectedly, in London on the 8th June 1946. Contingents of the Malay Regiment and the MPAJA marched proudly through the city’s streets that day, representing the Federation alongside all those other nations who took part in the war.
However, back at home Victory Parades had, by that time, already taken place in many of the towns of the Peninsula and the above photographs show an unknown military band leading the parade (left) and the Army Cadet Force of St Michael’s Institution on the right, marching through the streets of Ipoh on (what we believe was) 6 January 1946.
