Sydney Smart talking about going to Latrun


"There was one occasion we went to Latrun, just outside Jerusalem, where the Palestine Police had a large camp on top of a hill. And in Latrun were a lot of Jewish terrorist suspects. The whole place was masses of barbed wire and lights and we could hear the Jews chanting in the way they do all through the night. If we suspected anything wrong we used to put a red Very light up and the police would bring down a searchlight and hold it there until we cleared the spot and then put a green one up. That was just one of the jobs we used to do."
