One of the wounded German soldiers waves at the camera, from his stretcher. They proceed along a dirt road in the village until reaching a parked military ambulance, in which they place the wounded. Unharmed German prisoners are seen walking further through the village, and past a parked Renault F-17 tank, displaying a "diamond" symbol on its turret, indicating it was an American-operated tank.
