Film Number:A70 36-6
Description: German prisoners, drawn mainly from either the 716th or the 352nd Infantry Divisions and a German Customs and Excise Police detachment unlucky enough to be captured while on duty in the invasion sector, are sorted out before being allowed to enter No 9 POW Reception Camp at Kempton Park. A British Army sergeant escorts four Wehrmacht officers. Two guards lead a column of forty-eight prisoners into the camp; several captives attempt to hide their faces from the camera.
