On pa­rade

Sunday Times - - WEEK IN REVIEW - By Bren­ton Geach Gallo Im­ages

The pipes and drums of the Cape Field Ar­tillery lead the reg­i­ment’s birth­day pa­rade in Cape Town yes­ter­day. The reg­i­ment, one of the old­est ac­tive ar­tillery reg­i­ments in the world, was es­tab­lished 160 years ago on Au­gust 26 1857. It ex­er­cised its free­dom of the city to march with bay­o­nets fixed and swords drawn. It will hold a church pa­rade to­day.
