In this clip, taken from an interview on 8th September 2016, Commandant Anthony (Tony) Roe speaks about the condition of Beirut airport when they arrived there in 1979 (with the 45th Infantry Battalion). Tony remembers a section of Nigerian soldiers who were living in the corner of a hanger at Beirut airport. He explains that they were left behind because the plane they were to leave on was full and they were not prepared to leave behind provisions.
