Title:WITH THE GREATEST OF EASE (short version) [Main Title]
Film Number:COI 700
Summary: Training of recruits for the Parachute Regiment.
Description: The Regiment's motto is 'Knowledge dispels fear', and knowledge means thorough training. The film shows the various stages of this process: practising the separate elements of the jump and conditioning the body to the various stresses encountered during descent and landing; trial jump with a harness from a tower; first test jump from a tethered balloon; and the first descent from an aircraft. "Weeks of preparation and discipline produce the counter to any last minute doubt of stepping out."
