Gallery – Preparation for the 2011 Independence Day

Ribbons tied down on the lamp posts, with the typical red-white-blue motif.

While walking today on the capitol  grounds, I saw this contingent from the 903rd Brigade of the Philippine Army preparing for the Independence Day. They had a 2 Simba APC units, 1 unit of 6×6 personnel truck and the latest KM450 KIA personnel carrier. They even towed a M101 105mm howitzer! These artillery piece must have been from World War II.

Ribbons for 2011 Independe Day. The motif looks like the tri-colors of the French flag, which was the basis of the Philippine flag colors.
