    A slate at 5:33 tells us that the footage was shot by a cameraman named "Walker", and is footage of an Airborne Awards ceremony.

    Given that the awards seem to be getting made to American soldiers, we can perhaps assume that the dating on the slate is in the American dating format, meaning the footage was shot on October 6th 1944.
