    "Several shots of the Castle at Rheydt" - the building's proper, German name is Schloss Rheydt.

    "Ray-Margen" in text and "Ray-Mergen" in tags should both read Remagen.

    "American rocket tank." - I'm no militaria expert, but this MAY well be a T-34 Calliope rocket-launcher atop an M4 Sherman tank.

    I am led to believe that my father, Sapper William (Bill) John George Barlow, helped to reconstruct this bridge.
    If anyone has any more information about this section of film, or indeed the 157th Railway Construction Company, please do not hesitate to get in touch,
    Many thanks
