    Hello,

    I believe I found the church visible from 1:42 up to the end : it's Hermanville 's church, as can be seen on this Wikipedia page : http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermanville-sur-Mer

    The village is on the seaside, between Ouistreham (at east) and Luc-sur-Mer (at west) which is indicated 4 kms aside on a road signal at the beginning of the film : so it was one of the way out of Sword beach ...

    Thanks for all those reels !!
