The celebration of the Greek Revolution of 1821 also known as Independence Day, takes place in Greece on 25 March every year, coinciding with the Feast of the Annunciation.
In Greece, it has been established to celebrate it every year, as a national holiday, with parades of all branches of the Hellenic Armed Forces.
The film begins with the limousine of King Paul I and his wife Frederica of Hanover, heading to the official seats in order to watch the parade. They are accompanied by cavalry officers. People, from the sidewalks, applaud them and they greet the crowd.
Here is another limousine carrying, as far as we can tell, the three children of the royal couple, Constantine II, Sophia and Irene.
Footage of the parade with the military band, motorcyclists and vehicles of the Hellenic Army (Land Corps) department with soldiers and heavy weaponry (cannons, missiles, etc.). More armoured vehicles, tanks and other vehicles with heavy missiles follow. Then soldiers of the Hellenic Armed Forces, the Ground, the Naval and the Air Force parade. The band closes the parade.
The parade is over, the traffic has been restored, crowded people who have watched the parade, are leaving now.
