An army personnel carrier patrolling a debris-strewn street passes a burning milk delivery lorry. 197007030251a...The British Army imposed during July 3 & 4, 1970, a 34 hour curfew (except for a two hour break to allow shopping) in approximately 50 streets in the Lower Falls district of Belfast, N Ireland, UK. A military helicopter hovers overhead warning people they would be arrested if they remained on the streets. An army search during the curfew uncovered 100 firearms, 100 home-made bombs, 250 lbs of explosives, 21000 rounds of ammunition and 8 two-way radios. This curfew is often seen as a turning point in souring relations between the Roman Catholic working class and the British Army. The army was no longer seen as the protector of the Catholic community.<br />
