Movie Thursday – Boche-Busting at Halfaya

Some very interesting movies from British Pathe showing events during operation CRUSADER.

1. The Libya Offensive

2. Advance into western Cyrenaica (Dec. 1941)

3. Fall of Bardia (2 Jan 1942)

4. Capture of Halfaya Pass (17 Jan 1942)

5. Mopping up in Libya (I assume this is either in late 41 or early 42 – maybe someone recognises the General?)

6. First German POWs to arrive in South Africa (1942)

Happy viewing!
