    Although currently dated as 1940, this footage actually originates from 1945.

    "Land Rover" needs removing from text and tags, as the vehicle referred to is certainly not a Land Rover, (the Land Rover hadn't even been designed at this time).

    This is definitely not 1940. It is post the invasion of Europe in June 1944 (as evidenced by some of the equipment in use; the Lee-Enfield No4 rifle, the Mk3 \"turtle\" helmet, and the trailer with the American star on it etc etc.) The snow means it must be the winter of 1944-45. Operation Blackcock was an operation to clear German troops from the Roer Triangle, formed by the towns of Roermond and Sittard in the Netherlands and Heinsberg in Germany conducted by the British Second Army between 14 and 26 January 1945. The tanks are using a \"mine flail\".
