Basic Wales

The Paras Episode 3 of 7

First transmitted in 1983. The morale of 480 Platoon has reached its lowest ebb as they put the infantry theory learned at Aldershot into practice in the bitterly cold and windy Welsh hills. At the end of the week they are assessed and some continue, some are 'back squaded' and one goes absent without leave.
