    Art 02:55, the man on the left is BBC war correspondent Edward Ward. The man on the right is Pathe cameraman Terry Ashwood. This material appears to be offcuts for clip 1151.01

    The prison camp in 0:44 to 1:12 is Dulag Luft 3, Wetzlar, approximately 3 to 4 kilometers west north west from Wetzlar, a town some 50 kilometers north of Frankfurt-on-Main and was a former German army camp (Flak troops).
