7TH ARMOURED BRIGADE PDT AT SENNELAGER, AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER 2005 (TAPE 3) [Allocated Title]
PDT (pre-deployment training) by members of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards (15 September) as part of 7th Armoured Brigade. The training takes place at Sennelager Ranges in Germany.
Riot control training at the mock village (informally known as "Tin City"): members of the Scots Dragoon Guards, in full riot gear, andvance against a stone-throwing crowd, backed up by armour. Petrol bombs are also thrown.
Troops deploy on the open ranges outside Sennelager in Land Rovers and Warrior armoured vehicles. Platoon advances across open ground before boarding a Warrior and driving away.
Further riot control scenes at Tin City: streets are patrolled on foot and in Land Rovers. All is quiet for a while before trouble starts to break out again: attack dog and handler help keep back a gathering crowd. The mood turns ugly as the crowd advances; troops in riot gear endeavour to keep order as smoke bombs and petrol bombs are thrown. Scuffles break out.
