Background: British soldiers were filmed in Cyprus during a recent search for arms in the Kyrenia district.
Using specially designed ground-searching implements, they were also looking for mines.
But the arms on this operation, when they were found, were located in a well. A number of small weapons were discovered and an EOKA suspect was arrested.
