    The footage here is the work of at least two separate cameramen.

    The material from 0:01 is shot by a Sgt. Walter on 29 June 1944.

    At 0:57 the cameraman changes to someone named simply as "Ginger". That footage is agin shot on 29 June 1944.

    I suspect that the footage from 03:24 onwards may be shot by a third, unnamed cameraman.
