    This footage was all shot by cameraman Walter Snowden of the 166th Signal Photo Company.

    '"M/S factory. M/S German sign above it"- this is the salt and potash mine complex at Merkers, Germany. Here were found hidden huge amounts of Nazi gold and stolen artworks.

    The footage can be dated to have probably come from April 1945, the area having been safely cleared by U.S. focus on 4th April 1945.

    My father was a British pow liberated here at Merkers. He was still at the mine 12th April 1945 when Eidenhower,Patton and Bradly visited the mine. Does this clip go beyond 2.50?
