The Dutch marine crew of Zr. MS. Holland received a very warm welcome on Times Square in New York on Tuesday, resulting in a photo that looks like it came straight out of a Fred Astaire musical. The Royal Marines posted the photo on Twitter on Tuesday night.

The marines are visiting New York on their way back to the Netherlands after a 3 month long mission in the Caribbean area. They decided to try and get some group photos in uniform on Times Square for the Royal Marines' archive, spokesperson Jan Pullen said to broadcaster NOS.
