How army uniforms evolved since 1950s: Spectacular display by six contingents at R-Day parade
The stunning show by six contingents during the 73rd Republic Day parade moving along Rajpath has offered a colourful feast to the eyes. The marching contingents were headed by the Rajput regiment, which had been wearing the outfit since the 1950s. They were followed by an Assam contingent dressed in 1960s uniforms. The third contingent was the Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry, which wore 1970s uniforms. The Sikh Light Infantry and Army Ordnance Corps regiments made up the fourth and fifth contingents. The Parachute Regiment, dressed in the most recent outfit, was at the back of the line.
The new uniform, which will be supplied to approximately 12 lakh Indian Army personnel, has a new disruptive design and camouflage pattern.
