A U.S. Army staff car displaying a bumper plate with three stars, arrives at a building in Nieuwkerk, Netherlands, being used as headquarters of the U.S. Ninth Army's XVI Corps. Military policemen guard the entrance. Occupants step from the car. Next, Ninth Army Commander, Lieutenant General William H. Simpson, is seen standing in front of the building, with XVI Corps Commander, Major General John B. Anderson (momentarily hatless). In next scene both generals pose (Anderson now wearing his steel helmet). As the two converse, a British staff car drives up. The two American generals salute, as British Field Marshal Bernard L. Montgomery steps from the car. Next, Montgomery stands in the street, removing his overcoat (with a little difficulty), as he chats with the two U.S. generals. A military photographer, in the background, takes pictures. The three leaders continue their conversations on the sidewalk in front of the building. Closeup of Marshal Montgomery speaking as two army photographers are seen, along with some town dwellings, in the background.
