Item specifics

Condition:
New: A brand-new, unused, unopened and undamaged item. See the seller's listing for full details. See all condition definitions- opens in a new window or tab
Type: Photographs
Service: Army Era: 1914-1945
Country/ Organization: Great Britain Conflict: World War II (1939-1945)

Here I offer a DVD containing 427 high resolution scans ( 1200 dpi ) . The scans were produced from 3 original photo albums which belonged to a British Soldier who served with 1st battalion The Border Regiment . I believe the albums date circa 1943-1947 ..although not 100% certain as there are no captions .

It needs to be noted that British soldiers were not permitted to carry cameras into battle , there are no combat photos . These are snapshot photos, not professionally taken images and there has been some fading with many . So quality of the images is not as good when compared to a German album of the period .

A high percentage of the photos feature the same faces ..most are uniformed shots of soldiers of the battalion at rest / messing about . There are however some interesting images which help date the photos. One photo shows a freshly dug grave with a wooden cross ...Marked on the cross is the name Lt. Holt 1st Borders ..he was killed at Arnhem 21.Sept 1944 . Later on there are  approx. 10 photos of the men on German Cruisers Nurnberg and Leipzig ( ships names marked on gun plates ) ..Leipzig was Scuttled in July 1946 ...These photos were taken at Wilhelmshaven .

There are many photos which appear to have been taken in Holland and Germany ..The men mixing with local children etc .. In lots of the photos the men's Border regiment  Shoulder flashes can be seen.

In 1946 the battalion moved on to Triest and in 1947 Palestine ...there are some photos which relate to this period .

If you are interested in the Border regiment ...there should be plenty here for you . I would like to learn more about the men in the images , if you can help , please contact me . I would especially like to put some names to the faces & know if any of the men featured ,served in the Battle at Arnhem .
