    Background: Queen Juliana of the Netherlands visiting army units at Hedel and Vught, October 28, saw sappers transport tanks over a river on raft-like ferries.

    The Queen also watched the armymen carrying out patrol and supply exercises in rubber dinghies and boats with outboard engines.

    Frogmen jumped into the icy river from the speeding boats, then were hauled out of the water at the same speed by a special life line to demonstrate fast rescue methods.

    The Queen also saw sappers is battledress throwing pontoon bridges across the river and building Bailey-bridges.
