  • If someone has a clue ??

    Hello boys .

    If you want to get an idea of devastation in Normandy ,this film's for you.
    Of course ,since you are specialists of WW2 ,you won't be surprised.
    But what made my hair up on my head ,is this delivery van at 2.11.
    How did he ended there ?
    Does it comes from the Anglo-normande islands ?Jersey , Guernesey ?
    Vale road is common in England so the location isn't easy to spot on ..

    One of the odds of war.Weird ,to say the least.

        Nope not stupid at all. As Opana pointed out Guernsey is the source for the van.
        L S Warry & Sons (later Warry's) was a local bakery until closing in 2013.

          The German Channel Islands Garrison did conduct a raid on the coast after D Day - wonder if the van had been commandeered for use in this?

                The dates on the newsreel are all from June 1944 and the raid you're thinking about took place in March 1945 as a hit and run raid for coal supplies
                so very unlikely.

                    Ignore him, Sebby. We have a bakery here in town where I buy my morning brioche six days a week.

                      He's married to a French lady ,he cannot be bad !!
                      May be an absence due to his daily use of French ?

                        The power of the bulldozer...

                        Notice how most of the vehicles shown are pushed to one side of the road or into ditches, etc. Or, how others are busted up thoroughly?
                        At 2:42 you see a vehicle half buried in dirt. Same thing. Fill the crater, remove the debris, and push the whole mess to the side of the road.
                        That's almost certainly due to US Army engineers coming along and bulldozing everything off the road to quickly clear it for use.

                          Hi Seb, this stuff is not up to your usual standard mate, it is just a continual run of smashed up vehicles (often the same vehicle from a different angle ) give it a miss my friend. lcm1
