  • Description

    Eighty Dutch commandos - all handpicked men and volunteers - are now ready at a moment's notice to help in police protection work in the Lebanon on behalf of United Nations. But whether or not they leave Holland will be decided when Secretary-General Mr. Dag Hamarakjold returns to New York from the Middle East today. It was last week that the Dutch government announced itself willing in principle to supply protection forces for Lebanon duty, if asked by U.N.

    Yesterday in Holland, the 80 commandos, together with officers and a chaplain, were busy packing their kit and making final preparations, as our film shows.
