Title: Protesting Against British Army Mobile Patrols [No.F8P7]
Description: A group of children protesting at the excessive speed of British Army vehicles while on mobile patrols through the streets of Rosemount and Creggan. The protest also highlighted the high speeds of civilian vehicles. At this time there were no facilities for the large numbers of children in the areas who were forced to use the streets for play and socialising. Prior to the demonstration an Army vehicle had mounted a pavement and struck a child; the child sustained a broken leg.
