    I think the real arnhem fanatic did know already the source because most of the footage is used in many docu's.
    I have also a docu with monné and claus in it.
    They both telling about these footage.
    But I like this topic and discussion.

    Folks,

    Here's a before and after comparsion that may be of interest taken in front of the Family Clous' side porch. The after shot of the porch from Google maps is not so great, but it was the best I could find for illustration purposes.

    Also for my own curiosity is the attached capture of "Villa Maria" near the corner of Utrechtseweg-Pastoor Bruggemanlaan the home of the Family Monnee?

    Hello mate,

    Can you remember which docu features Monnee and Claus speaking about their movies?

    All the best :)

    I do wish the people from Google Earth would go back and do Oosterbeek again, preferably when there is not a monsoon raging!! :(

    I agree fully Paul. A finer day would have brought out so much more clarity. But I suppose we should be thankful that Google Street View is still available in Holland. In the case of Germany Google made the decision to stop Street View rather than deal with all the privacy issues that were being raised.

    I too would be interested to learn how well the story of these two families has been documented.

    Cheers ... :)

    Edit: Street View

    At last.

    A couple of photos of A Troop Jeeps.

    Sgt Ray Hewer and lt Bob Guthrie.

    Note Tac sign in spare wheel, K gun mounting and Bren boxes on the bonnet.

    Unfortunately no 41 plate to confirm the format.

    I have some others from Norway.

    Cheers

    Nijmegen - Red should read: "Blimey, where are all these bl..... Germans suddenly coming from".


    Time for a coffee, I guess?

    Paul and Cee,

    Can't find it on the moment. Only a small part telling by mrs clous-veen. Not many details. It's the docu "we'll see you in september". Clous was dentist, cee

    Thanks Ramon ... :)

    It's quite interesting to see the various family members captured in a few of the clips. I noticed as well that they both caught the same Para walking down the street surrounded by a crowd of people.

    Cheers ...
     
  14. These are excellent film clips and photos. From a Small Arms perspective, the detail shown on the Vickers GO is something I haven't seen before. The offset sights on that shown in the second photo above and the detail of one of the clips is interesting as most other types of sights were straight.

    Regards

    This time Wikipedia is your friend Cee.

    The SdKfz 11 3 ton tractor at the front is the late version with a truck wooden body covered by a tilt. The front bench seat could be covered with a smaller tilt attached to the windscreen top and a hoop behind the seat. The door is a give away as the personnel carriers didn't have them.

    The rear vehicle is an SdKfz 251 Ausf D on the same chassis. The giveaway here is the first stowage locker being so near the front. The overhanging items at the rear could be draped over the rear MG mount which has been turned to the rear. This is often seen on vehicles out of action to make more room in the troop compartment.

    Thanks SleeperService,

    I`m glad to hear that I wasn`t too far off on what was a very quick look up on the vehicles.

    Cheers ...

    Ron,

    I do not know how I missed this excellent thread.

    On viewing the Initial Video, I too thought that the gun was very similar to the 20mm Oerlikon, especially the Magazine.

    I search and found this Airborne Website which Shows the gun and several good Pictures.

    I checked each post and this Website does not appear to have been mentioned, but apologies if I have overlooked it.

    Regards
