France Date:1944 Duration:1 min 47 sec Sound:NO SOUND
A Swiss Border guard walks toward camera, on the French side of the Franco-Swiss border crossing near Annecy, France, during World War 2. He confers with an American Air Force officer. A tram arrives on the Swiss side and stops at the border. A large group of American flyers step from the tram with their baggage. They are barred from moving further, by Swiss guards. But one man in a raincoat, walks past the guards and greets U.S. officers and an official, outside a customs office at the border. A Swiss border guard supervisor directs guards to move the flyers to a walkway. Another American Army officer arrives and greets those already there. The flyers being repatriated from Switzerland, walk en masse across the border and climb aboard a bus waiting on the French side.
