Wrinn is visibly distressed as the blade is set too high so bodies slip beneath vehicle.
He spits over the side of tractor and smokes.

Later he is relieved by Burridge of Todmordon, Yorks holding petrol soaked handkerchief over his nose and mouth while driving tractor with other hand.

This archive has been established after my own relative, Reg Price, took part in the liberation and subsequent humanitarian effort of Bergen Belsen in April 1945. Reg produced this famous sign at Belsen. As part of the 113th DLI, Reg and his comrades were at Belsen for 5 weeks and left when the last hut was empty and ceremonially burnt down. This archive compiles all available resources to build a lasting tribute to all the men and women who helped - any unit, any nationality. If you have a relative, or any info, on the relief effort at Belsen, we’d love you to please get in touch. Email us: liberator@belsen.co.ukThank you Nick Price CreativesFacebookTwitter
