Dear folks, If this has appeared/been linked to before on the forum, apologies. Found under the IWM Collections innocuous title of "Footage For Pinewood Production 51" is a series of the most comprehensive film footage of Airborne Forces (1st Parachute Brigade, 1st Airlanding Brigade) and the American aircraft and ground-crew that assisted them in North Africa (and beyond) that I have seen. Eleven reels in all, over one and a half hours, of good quality film footage, with likely something of interest to most (in reel 2 even tanks and armoured cars get a look in via the victory parade!). 'Chuting up, emplaning, loading, landing, gliders and Dakotas galore, 6 pounders, 75 pack howitzers (on the ranges), containers loaded, loaded up, MMGs, mortars, trailers, trollies, barrows, interiors in flight and without, everything associated with Airborne troops of the time. The individual reel descriptions list a lot of the content, but there is so much more. Please, if your are inclined, view the footage in full screen on the largest display you have, and I hope you will not be disappointed. My only word of caution would be that the numerous close ups of chaps may come as a shock to relatives. Men are easily identifiable to those that know them, and unfortunately their war, and lives, ended in Sicily.
