It looks like the parade in Utrecht was to mark the anniversary of the landings on D-Day by the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division. The following is from the Regimental History of The Stormont Dundas and Glengarry Highlanders.

“On the 6th, the anniversary of D-Day, when Hilversum was en fete and a flag was on every house, the Glens marched in the parade at Utrecht.”

The regimental history of the North Nova Scotia Highlanders also mention a parade to mark the anniversary of D-Day but it dose not state the location.

The AoS of SDGH is “68” and the NNSH is “69”, both on a brown background.
