    "Corsa gliders" in the text should read Horsa gliders.

    This is a screen Print of Deutsche Wochenschau number 719 of 14 June 1944. The North Nova Scotia Highlanders and wrecked allied tanks are filmed around Authie, likely on 8 June, the day after the battle with the 12 SS, as one of the Stuart tanks is still smouldering. The tanks of the Sherbrooke Fusiliers (27th Canadian Armoured Regiment). The paratroopers are likely from the unfortunate sticks of \"C\" company of the 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion who were dropped on the west side of the Orne River far from their objective on the other side. The men with the shoulder titles of the Green Howards are a bit of a mystery. One has the “TT” patch of the 50th (Northumbrian) Infantry Division who landed on Gold Beach.

    *The tanks are of the Sherbrooke Fusiliers
