    Slates seen during the clip show the footage to be the work of at least two separate cameramen.

    A slate at 0:25 identifies the following footage to have been shot at Orleans, France, by William Cummings of the 166th Signal Photo Company.

    A second slate at 0:55 shows the following footage to have been taken at Chartres, France, on 18 August 1944, by Sgt W. G. Snowden, again of the 166th Signal Photo Company.

    W. G. Snowden, to whom I referred to in my earlier comment, is Walter Snowden.
