Great find. Well done that man.

Best thing I have seen in a while.

Watching that it makes you wonder if we could ever financially afford a World War again, the sheer scale of men, equipment etc. We'd probably run out of money a week into it and end up throwing bean cans at the enemy.

Brilliant. Recognised some of the New Guinea footage as the work of Damien Parer from his award winning "Kokoda Front Line" film. Like many of his ilk he was killed filming the action. Towards the end of the clip there is footage of what appears to be British commandos captured by the Germans. Has anyone ever seen that footage before or can throw some light on what and where?

Standard clip of Brit para's captured after Arnhem.

Excellent footage, only spoilt for me by the German footage (Sig 33 in Poland and Stug 44 when doing the D Day stuff)

Some of those clips have been digitally colored and are from black and white newsreel films, but it's been so well done you can not tell unless you have seen the originals here
