Nice clip. I've no idea whatsoever as to the unit or units appearing in it though. The only markings I saw were on the carrier at 03:05, and I'm not 100% sure what they were either. Was it WWC over 233?

I thought the could possibly be 1sr Division (white triangle) but I'm not sure it is a triangle on the mudguards to be honest.

Note the single colour capes... Not cammo.

Very nice!

Have noticed that there also wearing puttees instead of gaiters.

I do like that a couple of the men have issued with push bikes!

Might bring my Philips bike now hehehe

Here's another...

Lots of evidence of early (light) and later (darker) water bottle felt covers...

Interesting mix of soft caps in the first clip. Although it's difficult to pick out in black and white there appears to be some variation in the shades of paint on their helmets too.

There must be tons more on the Pathe site - but all lost in a sea of very poor descriptions and classifications. The people doing the archiving clearly know f**k all about WW2.
