  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - dates and locations unclear or unknown - 1945?

    Various shots of German and British officers walking towards a tent for the signing of the Armistice.

    Inside, we see General Bernard Montgomery sitting at a table. The others are seated around him. Monty seems to be reading the agreement, then all the others get up and sign it.

    German and British officers stand around a staff car outside, talking amongst themselves.

    British soldiers and military police look on. A group of British soldiers pose for the camera. Another staff car arrives, bringing a German officer.

    View of exterior of tent where signing takes place. British and German officers stand together talking before going inside a smaller tent (mess tent?). British soldiers stand outside the tent. One takes a coffee pot inside.
