Since starting my research into the use of Daimler during WW2 I have come across
many interesting, educational and sometimes genuinely moving photographs and film
Below I have attached a number of the best film clips that are all loosely connected
to the tide of liberation and jubilation that swept across northern Europe in late
1944, but more specifically the Netherlands.

An inscription to the People of Gelderland (Netherlands)
taken from a plaque at the Oosterbeek Museum.
50 years ago British and Polish Airborne soldiers fought here against overwhelming
odds to open the way into Germany and bring the war to an early end.
Instead we brought death and destruction for which you have never blamed us.
This stone marks our admiration for your great courage remembering especially the
women who tended our wounded.
In the long winter that followed your families risked death by hiding Allied soldiers
