Title:SCENES IN THE NORMANDY BEACH-HEAD D+1, D+2 (PART 11) [Allocated Title]
Film Number:A70 39-3
Description: A Royal Marine serving with No 46 Commando lies in wait in a farmyard, keeping watch with a PIAT over a road leading to a Luftwaffe radar station near Douvres-la-Délivrande, some three miles inland from 'Juno' Beach. The camera examines the radar station through a six-inch lens; the remains of a 'Giant Würzburg' radar aerial are clearly visible but little of the installation's extensive defensive system can be seen.
