    These notes deal solely with the footage from 02:38 onwards, as Bernard Montgomery reads the conditions of the German surrender.

    "Luneberg Heath" should read Luneburg Heath.

    "Montgomery invites the high ranking German officers including General-Admiral von Friedeberg and General Kienzl to sit down" - the five German officers seen around the table are;

    Generaladmiral Hans-Georg von Friedeburg

    General Eberhard Kinzel

    Konteradmiral Gerhard Wagner

    Oberst i. G. Fritz Poleck

    Major Jochen Friedel

    The full text of the surrender, as partly heard being read here by Montgomery, can be found here.....
