    Background: MUNICH HAS BEEN CELEBRATING HER TRADITIONAL 'OCTOBER FESTIVAL' - THE OUTDOOR FUNFAIR AND BEER-DRINKING EVENT WHICH BRINGS THOUSANDS INTO THE STREETS EVERY AUTUMN.

    BUT YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) THERE WAS A CELEBRATION OF A DIFFERENT KIND. THE WEST GERMAN ARMY - THE BUNDESWEHR - ORGANISED A CHARITY DANCE; THE PROCEEDS TO GO TO THE GERMAN WAR GRAVES COMMISSION. THIS SOCIAL EVENT WAS HELD IN MUNICH'S 'BURGERBRAU' BREWERY - IN THE BEER CELLAR WHERE HITLER HELD MEETINGS WHICH LED TO THE 'PUTSCH' AGAINST THE BAVARIANS IN 1923.

    OUTSIDE THE BUILDING, MEMBERS OF A GERMAN 'WAR REGISTERS' GROUP DEMONSTRATED AGAINST WHAT THEY CALLED A "DANCE FOR MASS GRAVES, CROSSES AND WREATHS". WEARING WORLD WAR TWO NAZI UNIFORMS AND CARRYING BANNERS AND TORCHES, THEY CEREMONIALLY LAID A LINE CROSSES AND STEEL HELMETS ON THE GROUP.

    THE DEMONSTRATION WAS PERMITTED BY THE POLICE, BUT THEY THREATENED TO ARREST WHO TRIED TO OBSTRUCT VISITORS TO THE DANCE.
