    Always fascinating to see stuff like this.
    "Black-and-white photographs showing victory parades through the streets of London to mark the end of World War One have reemerged, 100 years since the horrific conflict came to an end.
    Images taken during the course of several marches between the end of the war in 1918 and July 1919 show the streets of London filled with thousands of adoring spectators as British regiments parade past Buckingham Palace.
    Soldiers from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Britain and South Africa also took part in the victory parade through the streets of the capital.
    Marches were organised for returning troops following the armistice on November 11, 1918. Among those parades included on May 1919 and July of the same year. The London Victory Parade, Anzac Day and the inspection of dominion troops by the king were all included in this."
