Mike Bourne of the Royal Tank Regiment is seen boarding a Chieftain tank. MS of tank on the move is progressively obscured by split screen effects illustrating Mike's other activities - sailing, learning to drive, skiing, buying a car, etc. Everyone gets the same sort of opportunities in the Army. "Will you have done as much by the time you're twenty?" Closing sequence shows three Chieftains advancing in echelon towards camera, turrets at 9 o'clock - they fire blanks.
