What winter theaters did the British fight in toward the end of the war? I'm obviously familiar with the Ardennes/battle of the bulge and the push toward Berlin through Hurtgen forest. What was the British involvement in these theaters? Sorry, for the stupid question. :)

Without getting into specifics, I am sure you will agree that it is a reasonable assumption that in some capacity the British fought in winter climes on some unnamed battleground within their assigned sectors (however quiet they were) in NW Europe during the winter of '44-'45.

In the first shot of the 6th is that an American closest to the tree? Helmet looks right and looks like in a US Mackinaw jacket/coat.

Could be a liaison of some sort.

During the battles in Normandy, the 2nd Canadian infantry division had a batter of American 155 Long Tom's attached.
During Arnhem the SRY was supporting the American 82nd Airbotne also, a green American division 84th attacking the Seigfried line.

The British and Canadians were fighting in Holland all through the winter leading up to the Rhine crossings.

the Bulge gets all the attention as it was the German's last offensive in the West, but the fighting never stopped elsewhere
