Film (with Arabic soundtrack) of Iraq's armed forces and their ties with Britain.

Parade passes: infantry, transport and armour (Chevrolet trucks, mortars mounted on Land Rovers, 5.5-inch and 280mm artillery, Sheridan, Centurion and Churchill tanks), aircraft. Dignitaries inspect aircraft on ground. Sandhurst: Iraqi cadets singled out. Passing out parade. British army (with Iraqi personnel) on manoeuvres. Royal Artillery (flag): manoeuvres with 25-pounder gun. RNAS (standard shown): routine operations, with close-ups of Iraqi pilots.

Proud Iraqi pilot shows off his newly acquired wings. Hawker hunters with Iraqi emblems. More film of Hunters in action on and over RAF station; some have drop tanks and are transported to desert location. Unidentified officer gives speech.
