SBS Reclaiming The British Embassy - Kuwait City, Kuwait, 1991
A brief glimpse of SBS commandos on a mission to reclaim and secure the British Embassy in the Kuwait Capital at the end of the Gulf War, 1991. The SBS are fast-roping down from Chinooks flown by RAF Special Forces
7 Squadron SF flight. Off camera, Royal Navy Seakings delivered SBS sniper teams onto adjacent buildings who covered the main insertion. The SBS teams were ordered to storm and secure the Embassy buildings as it was feared that the occupying Iraqi forces may have left booby-traps or even troops inside. In reality, no boobytraps or enemy troops were found.
