Nice images but you can always question the accuracy of the titels (eg the Belgian artillery looks prewar to me and is that really a Canadian artillery unit ? )

Indeed, the accuracy of the titles is questionable. Especially during the first months of the war, the compilers of newsreels often made use of stock footage from manoeuvres, since the demand for images from the front was high whereas original footage was hardly available.

Whatever - Felix at this occasion I'd like to express a huge thank you to you and your colleagues to bring up these ancient and hidden treasures and place them into today's digital world. Thanks a lot and keep up the great work (...although it is the main contributor to your income :devilgrin: )
