    The footage was shot by Donald Calamar of the 167th Signal Photo Company, on 15 January 1945.

    The material shows the 115th Regiment of the U.S. Army's 29th Infantry Division.

    The cataloguer questions if the location is perhaps Germany, and certainly this regiment was deployed in Germany at this time.
