Title:845 SQUADRON AIR LIFT TROOPS OF THE 4TH MALAY REGIMENT IN SARAWAK [Allocated Title]
Film Number:ADM 3441
Summary: Wessex helicopters operating out of Nanga Gaat pick up Malay soldiers and transport them 2,000 feet up into the Sarawak hills, where the troops rope down into a jungle clearing to start a patrol.
Description: Aerial views of the base at Nanga Gaat. Camera-aircraft and a companion (recognition letter 'O') fly over jungle terrain to the pick up point, a log pad located in a bend in a river. Air and ground shots show the Malay troops being picked up in a touch-and go landing. Aerial view shows helicopter 'O' rising up through the tree tops after the pick up. At the roping down point the troops' descent is covered by ground to air shots and aerials of the companion helicopter and interiors and HA views of the camera-aircraft's own troops landing.
