The 113th Durham Light Infantry built swings for the children at Bergen Belsen.

Here’s another member of the unit. The two scenes show the same man. Do you recognise him?

The same man can be seen (below) on the left of the two servicemen. The unit has built a Table tennis game for the children to play. During the film, in the background, the unit vehicles can be seen parked in the stables.

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
