Remember the SLR

The latest rifle adopted by the British Army – the new Belgian FN.30 – is demonstrated at the Hythe School of Infantry, in Kent. Lieutenant-Colonel Dickson speaks about the merits of the new self-loading rifle, before handing over to his sergeant-major for a demonstration of how to field strip the new weapon. Clip taken from BBC Television Newsreel, originally broadcast on BBC Television, Friday 22 January, 1954.
