The world very much as it was in the 1940s. Imagine having to lug this around a battlefield!
Les Auld: They do go to great lengths to look right Chris. thanks for the comment.
When you see all the footage of WW2 you forget that men carted cameras like this through battlefields. Classic shot Les
Les Auld: They did follow very closely behind the front line Bill, thanks for the comment.
Good shot Les, I was probably stood next to you,smile
Les Auld: That would not surprise me Frank, thanks for the comment.
This is a good one Les. It must have been a great weekend getting these shots.

Just like a scene from one of those old WWII films.

Just look at the size of that camera. Not really something you would want to carry far whilst being shot at!
Les Auld: It would be a bit obvious Alan, thanks for the comment.

Roll camera and ACTION..smile
Les Auld: Oh dear he forgot to put the film in, thanks for the comment Tracy.
Classic shot Les, The marines should have been raising the flag and pole on the battle field though smile
Les Auld: Now that is an idea, that is if I can remember where I put the marines. Thanks for the comment John.
