    JOHANNESBURG SOUTH AFRICA 1946 TRAVELOGUE MOVIE "AFTER SIXTY YEARS" 50184
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Jan 20, 2017
    The Johannesburg City Council presents “After Sixty Years,” a circa 1946 black-and-white film narrated by Frank Secker that tells the history of the South African city. Johannesburg was named and established in 1886 two years after the discovery of gold on what had been a farm in an area considered a bleak and barren wilderness (mark 01:14). The film re-enacts that historic discovery starting at mark 01:41, and we learn how the news spread quickly, leading to gold hunters flooding the area aided in its development. Mark 05:55 shows the viewer images of Johannesburg’s new town tall, constructed around the turn of the 20th century, as well as scenes from the city’s 40th anniversary (mark 07:00). There are scenes of the ongoing underground drilling for gold coupled with how, after many intricate processes, it is refined and turned into gold bars (mark 10:20). The film continues with scenes of the bustling city and an explanation by Secker how it continues to grow, with scenes from city hall and city parks, sporting facilities, zoos, and other sites. A look at the city’s transportation system follows at mark 15:20, as are looks at such civic enterprises as markets and nursery schools (mark 18:39) and a hostel for girls (mark 19:03). The film also visits places such as self-contained Orlando Township (mark 20:50) and shows life among native non-European residents. As the film nears its end the viewer is treated to a glimpse of nightlife in Johannesburg, starting at mark 27:18.

    We encourage viewers to add comments and, especially, to provide additional information about our videos by adding a comment! See something interesting? Tell people what it is and what they can see by writing something for example: "01:00:12:00 -- President Roosevelt is seen meeting with Winston Churchill at the Quebec Conference."

    MrAgm65



    Published on Aug 21, 2013
    This is an Australian documentary focused on the French Légion étrangère (Foreign Legion) released in 1991.

    Every year more than 5,000 misfits from all over the world arrive in France to join the Foreign Legion. They are seeking redemption and a new identity — the Legion promises all. For more than 150 years the Legion has been shrouded in mythology. The Legion appeals to something deep and mysterious in the psyche of men. This film takes you to the inner sanctum of the Legion; to reveal how the rejects of the world find a strange salvation in this brotherhood of the unwanted.

    The Gurkhas - Full Documentry
    Seagame Kohking



    Published on Jun 7, 2013
    After great feedbacks from my previous Gurkha videos I decided to upload another one, this time more in depth and informative. Thanks for all the support guys and enjoy :D

    Gurkhas have been part of the British Army for almost 200 years, but who are these fearsome Nepalese fighters?

    "Better to die than be a coward" is the motto of the world-famous Nepalese Gurkha soldiers who are an integral part of the British Army.

    They still carry into battle their traditional weapon - an 18-inch long curved knife known as the kukri.

    In times past, it was said that once a kukri was drawn in battle, it had to "taste blood" - if not, its owner had to cut himself before returning it to its sheath.

    Escape from East Berlin: "Let Us Live!" 1953 USIS (1956 US Army Re-Release)

    "The story of refugees entering West Berlin to escape Soviet-controlled East Germany. It describes the immigration process followed by asylum-seekers and depicts life in the refugee camps of West Berlin. We hear several refugees tell why they chose to leave the Soviet zone."

    Produced by the US Information Service in 1953; re-released in 1956 as US Army film MF33-8718.

    Public domain film from the US National Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/West_Be...

    West Berlin was a city that existed in the period between the end of the Berlin Blockade on 12 May 1949 to German reunification on 3 October 1990 as a political enclave surrounded by East Berlin and East Germany. It was 100 miles (161 kilometres) east of the Inner German border and only accessible by land from West Germany by narrow rail and highway corridors. It consisted of the American, British, and French occupation sectors established in 1945 and shared economic, political, legal, and sporting systems with West Germany, but was not de jure part of it. It had a special and unique legal status because its administration was formally conducted by the Western Allies. East Berlin, de jure occupied and administered by the Soviet Union, was the de facto capital of East Germany. The Berlin Wall, built in 1961, physically divided East and West Berlin until it fell in 1989.

    With about two million inhabitants, West Berlin had the biggest population of any city in Cold War Germany...

    Origins

    The Potsdam Agreement established the legal framework for the occupation of Germany in the wake of World War II. According to the agreement, Germany would be formally under the administration of the four major wartime Allies—the United States, the United Kingdom, France, and the Soviet Union—until a German government acceptable to all parties could be established. The territory of Germany, as it existed in 1937, would be reduced by most of Eastern Germany thus creating the former eastern territories of Germany. The remaining territory would be divided into four zones, each administered by one of the allied countries. Berlin, which was surrounded by the Soviet zone of occupation—newly established in most of Middle Germany—would be similarly divided, with the Western Allies occupying an enclave consisting of the western parts of the city. According to the agreement, the occupation of Berlin would end only as a result of a quadripartite agreement. The Western Allies were guaranteed three air corridors to their sectors of Berlin, and the Soviets also informally allowed road and rail access between West Berlin and the western parts of Germany...

    At first, this arrangement was intended to be only a temporary administrative structure, with all parties declaring that Germany and Berlin would soon be reunited. However, as the relations between the western allies and the Soviet Union soured and the Cold War began, the joint administration of Germany and Berlin broke down. Soon, Soviet-occupied Berlin and western-occupied Berlin had separate city administrations. In 1948, the Soviets tried to force the Western Allies out of Berlin by imposing a land blockade on the western sectors—the Berlin Blockade. The West responded by using its air corridors for supplying their part of the city with food and other goods in the Berlin Airlift. In May 1949, the Soviets lifted the blockade, and West Berlin as a separate city with its own jurisdiction was maintained.

    Following the Berlin Blockade, normal contacts between East and West Berlin resumed; however, in many cases this proved only temporary. In 1952, the East German government began sealing its borders, further isolating West Berlin. As a direct result the electrical grids were separated and phone lines were cut. The Volkspolizei and Soviet military personnel also continued the process of blocking all the roads leading east and west from the city, resulting in several armed standoffs and at least one skirmish with the French Gendarmerie and the Bundesgrenzschutz that June. However, the culmination of the schism did not occur until 1961 with the construction of the Berlin Wall...

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_bride

    War bride is a term used in reference to foreign women who married military personnel in times of war or during their military occupations of foreign countries, especially–but not exclusively–during World War I and World War II.

    One of the largest and best documented war bride phenomenons is American servicemen marrying German "Fräuleins" after World War II. By 1949, over 20,000 German war brides had emigrated to the United States. Furthermore, it is estimated that there are "... 15,000 Australian women who married American servicemen based in Australia during World War II and moved to the US to be with their husbands". Allied servicemen also married many women in other countries where they were stationed at the end of the war, including France, Italy, Luxembourg, the Philippines and Japan. This also occurred in Korea and Vietnam with the later wars in those countries involving U.S. troops and other anti-communist soldiers. As many as 100,000 GI war brides left the United Kingdom, 150,000 to 200,000 hailed from continental Europe, 15,500 from Australia and 1,500 from New Zealand, between the years 1942 and 1952...

    War brides in World War II

    United States

    During and immediately after World War II, more than 60,000 U.S. servicemen married women overseas and they were promised that their wives and children would receive free passage to the U.S. The U.S. Army's "Operation War Bride", which eventually transported more than 70,000 women and children, began in Britain in early 1946. The first batch of war brides (455 British women and their 132 children) arrived in the U.S. on 4 February 1946. Over the years, an estimated 300,000 foreign war brides moved to the United States following the passage of the War Brides Act of 1945 and its subsequent amendments, of which 51,747 were Filipinos and an estimated 50,000 were Japanese...

    SOVIET NEWSREEL RUSSIAN SUPPORT OF VIETNAM, MIDDLE EAST NATIONS 50374
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Feb 3, 2017
    Made by the Soviet government, this newsreel is typical of those shown to audiences throughout the Eastern Bloc. Like the newsreels of the West, it contains various segments about sports, politics, and entertainment, but all through a Soviet lens. Notable segments include support of Vietnam in its fight against the USA and its allies, and support of the Arabs against the Israelis and USA.
    Narration: "Soccer. European championship qualifier, the first for our team, took place in the Central Stadium named after Lenin in Moscow. Soviet players (in the dark uniform) played a game against the national team of Austria. For a long time, neither team was succeeding. But yet another fierce attack by our players leads to a goal! (01.44) 1:0. The Austrian goalkeeper is worried. The game gets tense. Another great hit scores the Soviet team a point. It is only now that Austrian players manage to take the game to the Soviet team’s half of the field. It’s the 38th minute of the match. A hit, and the guests manage to win one score back. Nevertheless, the score does not remain 2:1 for long. Soon, it turns into 3:1, after one more goal into the Austrian net. (02.28) Yes, the Soviet team is obviously leading. But the Austrian team manages to take the initiative and score one more goal, 3:2. A few more minutes pass, and the score is equal, 3:3. Soviet players run towards the Austrian goalposts and succeed. Streltsov scores the winning goal. The Soviet team has made the first step towards the European championship finals. (03.04) The Secretary of the Party Organization of the plant, Kozlov, is speaking, ‘You all know well from history that the Middle East has always been the place that imperialists keep paying attention to. They have always been attracted by the Middle East oil. Currently, the fact of a treacherous attack, of naked aggression has become reality.’ (04.14)
    The Komsomol Committee member, Nikitin, is speaking, ‘We are sure that our brothers, Arabian nations, will manage to curb the aggressor with the help of all the honest people of the world and stand up for their independence and territorial integrity. We support you, our Arab brothers!’ (04.31) ‘Hands off Arab soil!’, Soviet people claim. They unanimously demand that the military forces are immediately withdrawn from the Arab territories. (04.45)
    Novorossiysk port. A special motor ship will set off from here to reach the shores of Vietnam. All this cargo has been purchased with the money of the Soviet people who volunteered to contribute to the peace fund. (05.03) A rally of workers of Novorossiysk supporting the people of Vietnam took place before the ship departed. ‘We are with you, Vietnam heroes!’, spokesmen were saying. The Soviet Union is faithful to its international duty, it won’t let down its brothers who are fighting a war against the criminal aggression of the American imperialism. Official representatives of Vietnam wholeheartedly thanked Soviet people for the support. Unbreakable friendship between the USSR and Vietnam is getting stronger. (06.05) A Soviet delegation led by Kosygin is departing for the Emergency Special Session of the UN General Assembly from Moscow. Delegations from Ukraine and Belorussia are taking the same flight to New York. (06.44) Young people of Tajikistan. They know about the times when Tajiks lived in shabby adobe buildings only from books and others’ stories. This is how the land of Tajikistan looks now. We are in the 'Moscow' collective farm, one of the most advanced in the Republic. Agricultural lands occupy more than 3,000 hectares. (07.25) A pumping station is located close to the fields. Cultivation of cotton crops is taking place in the collective farm at the moment. Deputy chairman of the collective farm, Ibragimov, and foreman, Safarov, are closely supervising the course of work. The ‘Moscow’ collective farm is a large multiple production farm. Its annual profit is about 5 million rubles. A boarding school has been built with the funds of the collective farm. (08.20) The new generation is growing up: young agronomists, mechanics-to-be, biologists. A bus with a sign ‘Attention! Children!’ appeared on the streets of Vilnius recently.

    1945 POST-VE DAY, PRE-VJ DAY WORLD WAR II MOVIE "ON TO TOKYO" 27994
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Feb 3, 2017
    Produced in 1945, "On to Tokyo" is a cautionary film made by the U.S. Army Pictorial Service. Featuring Chief of Staff George Marshall, the film speaks to the troops who won the war against Germany about the absolute necessity to defeat the Japanese. "They think we will grow tired of war," says Marshall, "and call it quits...our purpose is to crush Japan just as quickly as we can." To do this, Allied forces must be redeployed as soon as possible, and sent to Asia to defeat the remaining Japanese forces.

    The film is fascinating in that it paints a portrait of the many scenarios that could have unfolded in the wake of the German collapse, all of them set against the assumption that for the war to come to an end, will involve a massive invasion of Japan. That of course would have occurred had the USA not dropped the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.. As the film shows, a massive effort was in the works to shift those U.S. forces in Europe not needed as occupation forces, and re-direct them to Asia.

    At 3:30, a series of questions that might have been asked by battle weary forces in Europe are directed at General Dwight Eisenhower, General Joseph Stilwell, General Somervell, and others. Apparently few of the troops would have been given furloughs on the way to fight the Japanese.

    At 9:12, Secretary of War Stimson speaks about the logistics of moving troops across the Atlantic and the nature of the war economy. At 10:00, General Hap Arnold speaks about the idea of shipping troops home using aircraft.

    The film ends with a surprising discussion of the reasons that the Japanese must be dealt with. This includes an admonition by Stimson and by General Marshall that, even in the wake of the triumph of V-E Day, the big picture has to be remembered and Japan defeated. "Japan must be completely crushed before we turn to the ways of peace...this must be the first priority..."

    US Cavalry Scouts: "The Patrol" 1959 US Army; The Big Picture TV-427

    ' "Where is the enemy? What is he doing? How can we prevent it?" THE BIG PICTURE presents "The Patrol," the dramatic and exciting report of seven men sent deep into aggressor-held territory for the answers to these questions. Upon their skill, training, and fortitude can rest the outcome of an entire maneuver. As THE BIG PICTURE points out, thirty years ago such an assignment would have been accomplished by a lightening sortie of mounted men galloping headlong behind enemy lines, sowing confusion and, with luck, returning with the vital information. Today's cavalryman may not seem as glamorous but is certainly more reliable. In the course of their mission the patrol takes advantage of every form of transportation from helicopter to armored patrol car, to rubber raft, to combat boots. This is not a war "game." It has the serious purpose of giving Army units field experience in the doctrines they have studied in training. In wartime, such a mission could well result in the prevention of thousands of casualties.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cavalry...

    The Cavalry Scout is a job title and a reconnaissance specialist in the United States Army. Cavalry Scouts work to obtain, distribute, and share vital combat and battlefield information on the enemy and on combat circumstances and environmental conditions. The role originated with the United States Cavalry. The Cavalry Scout is also known as the "eyes and ears" of the Army.

    The Cavalry Scout is the commander's eyes and ears on the battlefield. When information about the enemy is needed, they call on the Scouts. Cavalry Scouts gather information by dismounted and/or mounted reconnaissance patrols. They are responsible for reconnaissance and they utilize various weapons to include explosives and mines. Cavalry Scouts engage the enemy with anti-armor weapons and scout vehicles in the field, track and report enemy movement and activities, and will direct the employment of various weapon systems onto the enemy. The job of a Cavalry Scout is to operate as one of the first personnel in an area, provide forward reconnaissance and spotting for the U.S. Army, and find and relay key information about the enemy to commanders and leaders in the field. Their duties include assisting with observation and listening posts, gathering reconnaissance information, performing and helping with navigation, and helping secure and transport ammunition. The Cavalry Scout leads, serves, or assists as a member of scout crew, squad, section, or platoon in reconnaissance, security, and other combat operations...

    Cavalry Scouts wear the ACU, or Army Combat Uniform. The standard camouflage pattern issued is the UCP (Universal Camouflage Pattern), or in certain theatres (specifically soldiers going to, or coming from Afghanistan), the OCP (OEF) Camouflage Pattern, commonly referred to as Multicam. Two unique articles, the stetson hat as well as spurs, can be worn during special events or when directed by the chain of command. Cavalry Scouts are permitted to wear the Cavalry Stetson Hat with the Dress Uniforms during formal unit functions....

    Training and School information

    All Cavalry Scouts attend OSUT (One Station Unit Training) at Fort Benning in Georgia. The first phase, roughly 9 weeks, is basic military training. The second phase, roughly 7 weeks long, focuses on becoming a Scout for a total of 16 weeks. During these final weeks the future Cavalry men are trained by Instructors as well as their Drill Sergeants.

    The OSUT training was moved from Fort Knox, Kentucky, to Fort Benning, Georgia, in 2011.

    Training is broken into color-coded phases, during which recruits gain increasing freedom, based on the recommendations of their drill instructors. Training requires good physical and mental condition, and is mostly hands on, in the field.

    First Sergeant (1SG) is typically a senior non-commissioned officer rank, used in many countries. In NATO armed forces the rank is on OR8 level...

    United States

    In the United States, a First Sergeant generally serves as the senior enlisted advisor (SEA) of a unit, such as a company, battery, troop, or a USAF squadron or higher level unit... While the specifics of the title may differ between the United States Army, Marine Corps and Air Force, all First Sergeants can be identified by the presence of a lozenge-shaped (colloquially "diamond") figure on their rank insignia...

    Historically, the rank of “First Sergeant” has existed in the American Army since 1781, when a fifth sergeant was added to the
    table of organization for Continental Army infantry regiments. Previously, under the tables of organization approved by the Continental Congress in 1776 and 1779, there were four and three sergeants, respectively, authorized in each company. The sergeants were numbered in order of seniority and the “First Sergeant” was simply the senior sergeant in the company, but not a separate rank. (Wright, 2006) In 1833, First Sergeant, along with orderly sergeant, became separate pay grades, ranking below Sergeants Major and quartermaster sergeants but above sergeants. While the sergeant major and quartermaster sergeant already had distinctive staff NCO rank insignia, it was not until 1847 that the first sergeant received the lozenge, or diamond, with the three chevrons of a sergeant as his insignia of rank...

    In the United States Army, the rank of first sergeant (abbreviated 1SG) is an E-8 paygrade rank above the rank of sergeant first class (SFC), and below the rank of sergeant major (SGM) or command sergeant major (CSM). It is equal in grade to master sergeant (MSG), although the two ranks have different responsibilities. Both ranks are identical with three chevrons up (standard sergeant insignia) and three curved stripes underneath "down" known as "three up and three down", though the first sergeant has the lozenge "diamond" in the middle. A first sergeant is generally senior to a master sergeant in leadership matters... The rank is abbreviated as "1SG" in the Army...

    The position of first sergeant is the highest US Army NCO rank position that is still in a direct "hands-on" leadership setting...

    First sergeants are generally the senior non-commissioned officers of company (battery, troop) sized units, and are unofficially but commonly referred to as "top", "top sergeant", "top soldier", "top kick", "first shirt", due to their seniority and their position at the top of the company's enlisted ranks. In the Bundeswehr, the German Army, the first sergeant (German: Oberfeldwebel) is called "father of the unit", a concept also in place in the US Army. They are sometimes referred to as "second hat" because the Company Commander may entrust them with important responsibilities, even over one of the company's lieutenants...

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bolivia

    Bolivia... is a landlocked country located in western-central South America. It is bordered to the north and east by Brazil, to the southeast by Paraguay, to the south by Argentina, to the southwest by Chile, and to the northwest by Peru. One-third of the country is the Andean mountain range, with one of its largest cities and principal economic centers, El Alto, located on the Altiplano. Bolivia is one of two landlocked countries (the other is Paraguay) that lie outside Afro-Eurasia. Bolivia is the largest landlocked country in the Americas.

    Before Spanish colonization, the Andean region of Bolivia was part of the Inca Empire, while the northern and eastern lowlands were inhabited by independent tribes. Spanish conquistadors arriving from Cuzco and Asunción took control of the region in the 16th century. During the Spanish colonial period Bolivia was administered by the Royal Audiencia of Charcas. Spain built its empire in great part upon the silver that was extracted from Bolivia's mines.

    After the first call for independence in 1809, 16 years of war followed before the establishment of the Republic, named for Simón Bolívar, on 6 August 1825...

    Ecuador... is a representative democratic republic in northwestern South America, bordered by Colombia on the north, Peru on the east and south, and the Pacific Ocean to the west. Ecuador also includes the Galápagos Islands in the Pacific, about 1,000 kilometres (620 mi) west of the mainland.

    What is now Ecuador was home to a variety of Amerindian groups that were gradually incorporated into the Inca Empire during the 15th century. The territory was colonized by Spain during the 16th century, achieving independence in 1820 as part of Gran Colombia, from which it emerged as its own sovereign state in 1830...

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colombia

    Colombia... is a transcontinental country largely situated in the northwest of South America, with territories in Central America. Colombia shares a border to the northwest with Panama, to the east with Venezuela and Brazil and to the south with Ecuador and Peru. It shares its maritime limits with Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Jamaica, the Dominican Republic and Haiti. It is a unitary, constitutional republic comprising thirty-two departments. The territory of what is now Colombia was originally inhabited by indigenous peoples including the Muisca, the Quimbaya and the Tairona.

    The Spanish arrived in 1499 and initiated a period of conquest and colonization ultimately creating the Viceroyalty of New Granada, with its capital at Bogotá. Independence from Spain was won in 1819, but by 1830 the "Gran Colombia" Federation was dissolved. What is now Colombia and Panama emerged as the Republic of New Granada. The new nation experimented with federalism as the Granadine Confederation (1858), and then the United States of Colombia (1863), before the Republic of Colombia was finally declared in 1886. Panama seceded in 1903...

    For a training exercise, it is stipulated that the US has been divided into three nations, Weston, Easton, and Floridan. Easton has turned communist. Weston is still a capitalist democracy. Floridan was neutral. But those darned commies from Easton overthrew the government there, leading to war with Weston. Weston's 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) is to infiltrate Easton, and assist pro-Weston guerilla forces there in overthrowing Easton's communist government. 'Big Picture camera crews in the rugged countryside of West Virginia cover an actual situation pitting the Special Forces of the U.S. Army, against the "Aggressor." Although it's a training problem, the script is written as it is enacted and the residents of Preston County are invited to join whichever side they choose. "Guerrilla, U.S.A." is exciting, timely, and informative.'

    The 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) is an operational unit of the United States Army Special Forces activated on 20 May 1960. It was reorganized from the 77th Special Forces Group, which was also stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Its purpose is to conduct guerrilla operations and train friendly governments' armed forces in the South, Central, and North America as well as the Caribbean. 7th Special Forces Group participated in Operation Urgent Fury in Grenada in 1983, as well as in Operation Just Cause in Panama in 1989. The 7th SFG has, like all the SFGs, been heavily deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan in the War on Terrorism...

    The 7th Group was active early in the Vietnam War, first operating in Laos (Operation White Star), and later in other global Cold War operations in addition to South East Asia (Laos, Thailand, and South Vietnam). 7th Group was also the first unit in South Vietnam to have a member earn a Medal of Honor, Captain Roger Donlon...

    Throughout the 1980s, 7th Special Forces Group played a critical advisory role for the El Salvadoran armed forces, which grew from a force of 12,000 to a total of 55,000 men. The Salvadoran military became a highly trained counter-insurgency force under the tutelage of 7th Group.

    The 7th Special Forces Group also played a very important role in preparing the Honduran military to resist and defeat an invasion from Nicaragua. 7th Group also trained the Honduran military in counter-insurgency tactics, which enabled Honduras to defeat the Honduran communist-backed guerrillas.

    7th Special Forces Group also became involved in counter narcotics operations in the Andean Ridge countries of Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia. The goal was not just to stop the flow of drugs into the United States, but to stem the violence that resulted from the drug trade in those countries.

    During the 3 October 1989 coup against Noriega by some of his troops, members of 7th Group conducted reconnaissance operations near the road that led from the cuartel of Battalion 2000 to Panama City, giving the US Southern Command advanced early warning of the elite Panamanian unit moving to rescue Noriega, who was being held captive in the Panamanian Comandancia...

    From 19 December 1989 to 31 January 1990, elements of the 7th Special Forces Group participated in Operation Just Cause to restore democracy to Panama. The 7th Group conducted combat operations on D-Day against multiple strategic targets. Over the next two weeks, 7th Special Forces Group conducted many reconnaissance and direct action missions in support of the operation...

    Since early 2002, the 7th SFG has deployed almost nonstop in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. 7th SFG along with the 3rd Special Forces Group are the two SFGs responsible for conducting operations in Afghanistan. The Group has also deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom numerous times, but not as often as Afghanistan. The 7th SFG has lost more SF soldiers in the Global War on Terrorism than any other SFG...

    'THE BIG PICTURE has come up with a neat little documentary in "Army Divers' School," filmed on location at Fort Eustis, Virginia. Director of Photography is SP-3 Gerald Finnerman of the Army Pictorial Center in Long Island City, and experienced and qualified cameraman from Warner Brothers Studio in Hollywood. Through his eyes and the lens of THE BIG PICTURE camera, TV viewers will follow the training and actual underwater operations assigned to enlisted divers of the Army Transportation Corps. The diving student learns and becomes a jack-of-all-trades: welder, carpenter, mechanic all rolled into one. He must also be an explosives expert; at home with such items as blasting machines, plastic explosives gelatin dynamite and TNT. Playing down the dramatics usually seen in underwater work, the skillful photography by Finnerman results in a documentary featuring generous use of all camera angles. It takes 17 weeks in the Divers' School for young soldiers who had never been under the water to become qualified salvage divers and fledgling members of one of the highest paid trades in the world.'

    The Army Engineer Divers are members of the United States Army Corps of Engineers who are trained to undertake reconnaissance, demolition, and salvage tasks underwater. These divers have similar skills and qualifications as professional divers...

    History

    Deep sea divers have been a part of the United States Army since the Spanish American War...

    As part of the US Army Port Construction and Repair Groups, US Army divers operated throughout the European and Pacific theaters during World War II. Divers performed salvage, demolition, pier construction, and bridging support. As part of the Normandy landings, US Army divers were participated in operations at Utah Beach...

    During the Korean War, Army engineer divers worked with Port Construction Companies to build and maintain pipelines in the ports of Inchon and Pohang, and reconstruct the locks in the port of Inchon. Later, during the Vietnam War, Army divers constructed ship-to-shore petroleum distribution and port facilities in Cam Rahn Bay and Qui Nhon...

    In 1989 during Operation Just Cause, US Army divers from the 536th Engineer Battalion 7th Dive Detachment performed base security at Howard Air Force Base and conducted body recover of MIA pilots and aircraft OH-58 salvage operations in the Panama Canal.

    In 1991 during Operation Desert Storm, divers deployed to Kuwait to engage in recovery operations after the ground war, clearing the Kuwaiti port of Shuaibah by removing debris and damaged Kuwaiti and Iraqi boats from the port.

    Since then, US Army divers have also supported port opening and reconstruction efforts in military operations in Somalia and Haiti. After 2002, US Army divers have been continuously deployed foreword to the CENTCOM area of operations, including Iraq, Afghanistan, Qatar, Oman, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Jordan...

    Army engineer divers continue to represent the vast capabilities of the U.S. Army Engineer Regiment... Currently, they are organized into five detachments (74th Engineer Dive Detachment, 86th Engineer Dive Detachment, 511th Engineer Dive Detachment, 544th Engineer Dive Detachment, 569th Engineer Dive Detachment) at Joint Base Langley–Eustis, Virginia, and one detachment (7th Engineer Dive Detachment) at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii... the co-location at the Naval Diving and Salvage Training Center is a fitting representation of their intertwined and storied history.

    Current duties and notable operations

    Army Engineer Divers are trained in underwater construction, salvage, demolitions, hydrographic survey, hyperbaric chamber operation, beach and river recon, bridge recon, underwater cutting and welding, side scan sonar operations, mine and countermine operations, search and recovery operations and ships husbandry operations. Army divers use both surface supplied "Hard hat" and SCUBA to perform their missions...
