The deadline for the withdrawal of forces, stipulated in the state treaty of the 15th of May 1955, came on the 25th of October 1955. Therefore, the last soldier did not leave Austria on the 26th of October - the current date of the Austrian national holiday - but before. The federal law guaranteeing Austrian neutrality was passed by the National Assembly on the 26th of October though.
