Default Life in the Intelligence Corps film.

IWM (DRA 1183)

Army Recruiting film following a group of recruits to the Intelligence Corps through their basic and trade training. They are shown learning drill and weapons handling and undertaking various kinds of fitness training before going on to be taught skills specific to their chosen Corps. Office administration, the collation and recording of intelligence, photographic interpretation, cordon and search operations and counter-intelligence are all on the syllabus before the training class is split up for postings to operational units. The film then shows situations and tasks likely to be encountered by British forces in Singapore, Malaya and Hong Kong. A cordon and search operation in a village in Kenya, where the Mau Mau insurgency was then coming to an end, is also shown. British soldiers surround a house, search the occupants and, having found an illegal weapon, take them away for questioning.

Fascinating - in every sense the Int Corps of 1960 was in a different world. The panoramic shot of Lok Ma Chau HK - paddy fields and the odd straw hut -is now wall to wall high-rise concrete. Thanks for posting the link. Mike

I'm disappointed that I failed to spot Green and Grey Acorn in action with his Sterling SMG etc. But the security vetting of dozends of Singaporean "Suzie Wongs-to be" was a consolation! Mike
