Red Square

British soldiers have marched in Red Square in Moscow for the first time to mark the 65th anniversary of the defeat of Nazi Germany on Sunday.

Seventy six soldiers from 2 Company 1st Battalion Welsh Guards marched beside more than 10,500 Russian troops and others from the US and France.

Having grown up in the Cold War, I find this an extraordinary turn of events even though a little research has informed me that The Prodigy, Shakira, Paul McCartney, Roger Waters, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers have all played Red Square in recent years.
