    Location: dropzone 82nd Airborne Division, near Overasselt, a village between Grave and Nijmegen. Civilians look like local boys giving the paratroopers a hand collecting the dropped equipment and supplies.
    George Hebenstreit was an army cameraman, attached to the 82nd. He landed in a glider on september 18th.

    II don\'t think the name has anything to do with the cameraman, as in the above comment. See your own film, which also mentions the same place name: https://www.britishpathe.com/video/arnhem
