Scope and Content

Combined Operations Exercises recently took place "Somewhere on the South Coast". Troops were landed under fighter protection consisting of Typhoon fighters. Landing support craft which are small but very efficient, supplied a smoke screen. Tanks were landed to give support to the landing parties, and having completed their "mission" the troops were withdrawn under another smoke screen. The whole operation was a great success. Photo shows: A tank just left his landing craft proceeds up the beach to the assault.
