• Short Summary

    British soldiers endure a tough assault course as part of their training.

  • Description

    Titles read: "MEN OF STEEL".

    Location of events unknown - probably somewhere in Britain.

    Various shots of soldiers making their way through a tough assault course as part of their training. They run down a hill and wade through a reservoir, climb over a wall, cross a ditch on narrow tree trunks amid shellfire, jump into another ditch and help each other up another wall. Brief shots of them thrusting their bayonets into hanging sacks.

    The course ends with a cliff face that the men have to climb - looks very difficult. M/S panning across a group of soldiers after their endurance test - they look knackered but manage a smile!
