    Reducing this clip's current date range of 1940-49, this footage was shot in June 1945.

    "Field Marshall Bernard Montgomery's Rolls Royce" - it's a Rolls Royce Silver Wraith.

    At 02:39 Montgomery is briefly glimpsed beside a statue - this is the Ganseliesel (Goose girl) statue, in Gottingen, Germany.

    "General Hull" is Major-General Richard Hull.
