Nearly 1,400 troops, cadets, police and prison officers, and over 100 combat vehicles lined up in Narva for the traditional Independence Day military parade. 

The parade took place in Narva around midday. After roll call and arrival of the flag and the chief of defense, President Toomas Hendrk Ilves arrived at noon.

The president reviewed the troops, and an address was delivered by Lt. Gen. Riho Terras, chief of defense. The public milled over a selection of combat equipment displayed on the main square after the parade.

The parade also featured a record number of Nato allies from the Netherlands, the UK and the US, as well as representatives from Latvia, Lithuania and Spain.
