Title: CS Gas (1) [No.F6P35]
Description: Cannisters of CS Gas together with smoke grenades land beside some youths in the Bogside area of Derry. The security forces relied heavily on CS gas even though it was a very indiscriminate method of riot control. It was often used in combination with smoke because the security forces believed that the smoke helped to concentrate the gas.
