    Some very interesting footage Ned,

    Bayerlein is centre shot at 2.53 , he died on 30/1/1970.

    He was awarded the RK on 26/12/1941 so that piece of footage must predate that as he is not wearing it.
    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    1st July 1916

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    House Carles at the Battle of Hastings

    Thanks for the added info Paul. Glad I was correct on Bayerlein's date of passing.
