Here is a small movie about september '44, operation Market instead of pictures. Sorry that the text is in Dutch, maybe soon een Englisch version.

Especially like the one's with the wartime camera! Just wondering, and I really don't want to start an argument about anything, but who wore the bergens within the paras? Pathfinders? My only knowledge about the Brit Paras are from A Bridge To Far :P

In this instance they're Glider Pilots, but there are many, many discussions as to who else would've carried Bergens. I've heard that some airlanding units and airlanding engineers might've used them but personally I haven't seen or read any evidence of this... that's only personally you understand, I'm not saying it didn't happen of course.
