The daily lives of a group of soldiers in 'B' Company, 1st Battalion Royal Wessex Rangers, a fictional British Army infantry regiment. The series is regarded as an accurate depiction of life at that time for soldiers in the army. As an unusually honest programme about British Army life and 'The Troubles' in Northern Ireland in the 70s, 'Spearhead' was a worthwhile achievement for British Television
