World War II: Reenactments

This film documents my great grandfather, recounting his involvement in the Second World War. He is currently living alone in Enfield, London at the ripe old age of 101. The 16mm footage was taken by him as he travelled through France and Germany only a few months after D-Day. The man smoking a pipe is himself and most of the other men were his "squad". I haven't confirmed this but I think there is one shot in which you can see some captured German engineers waiting to be sent to an allied base for extradition most probably to either Britain or the US.
