King guest of honour at British military parade
London, 11 May 2014



His Majesty King Abdullah on Sunday attended the 9th Combined Cavalry Memorial Parade as a guest of honour.

The parade, held in the UK with the participation of senior British military figures, included military exercises, awards and decorations of armoured regiments’ servicemen.

The armoured battalion includes the Light Dragoons, in which King Abdullah had served in a leading post while receiving his military training after graduating from the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst.

The Light Dragoons is considered the oldest and most important battalion of the UK army.
