    Background: At the Royal Military College, Rustamiya, King Feisal of Iraq recently attended the Field Day of Military Activities.

    Military Field Days tend to be similar all the world over, with Military Tradition and expertise taking a prominent part in the events; but one amusing departure at Rustamiya was a pillow fight.

    The families of N.C.O's were also encouraged to take part in a 50 metre race and tug of war.

    The prizes at the completion of the events were presented by King Feisal.
