  • Description

    Item title reads - Realism in training.

    Northern Ireland, Ulster.

    Tanks drive quickly over fields amongst explosions, men fire rifles and antitank guns. The tanks drive over the trenches where the soldiers are positioned. Various shots as British troops shoot the 'enemy' running towards them. Men carry their rifles and bayonets through heavy barrage of fire. Various shots of 'wounded' soldiers falling and some hand to hand fighting. They run through a water filled tank trap and across the fields. A would-be German motorcyclist falls on a trip wire and British soldiers come out to capture him. A small tank swerves to avoid the road block and the driver is set upon by the soldiers.
