Default Dutch archives

Here is a list of online Dutch archives (non-exhaustive):

Ministry of Defence: https://nimh-beeldbank.defensie.nl/

Library of Zeeland: https://digitaal.dezb.nl/beeldbank/

Collectie Nederland: https://data.collectienederland.nl/

Image bank NIOD: https://www.niod.nl/en/imagebase-ww2 - refers to Image bank: https://beeldbankwo2.nl/en/

home page for archival research: https://www.archieven.nl/en

Find some more via https://www.tweedewereldoorlog.nl/ke...nen/archieven/

Only some have an English language version, but searching should be intuitive.

Enjoy!
Hanno

Hi Hanno

Good idea.

Faces of the Second World War. A library and Archives Canada (LAC) effort:
"...This database features photographs of men and women who served in the Canadian Forces during the Second World War. Taken from the Department of National Defence (DND) collection at Library and Archives Canada, these photographs depict military life during the Second World War...".

http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/discove...world-war.aspx





regards
Darrell

The ladies' headgear would appear to be somewhat unusual. Without seeming to be culturally insensitive, what is it?

They are traditional Dutch headdress called oorijzer or ear-irons, which varied in material and size per town or region. The were adorned by a lace cap.

Back in those days women would not go outside except when fully dressed up in traditional clothes.

Ram tanks of 3rd County of London Yeomanry (Sharpshooters), 1944

Photograph by Major Wilfred Herbert James Sale, MC, 3rd/4th County of London Yeomanry (Sharpshooters), World War Two, Home Front, 1944.

The Ram was a Cruiser tank designed and built in Canada, based on the American M3 Medium tank. Around 2000 were produced until mid-1943 when the decision was made to adopt the Sherman tank for all British and Canadian armoured units. Although the majority of Ram's were not used in combat, a few were converted into observation post vehicles during the North West Europe campaign (1944-1945).

From an album containing 233 photographs compiled by Major W H J Sale, MC, 3rd/4th County of London Yeomanry (Sharpshooters).

Hanno, this list is very useful but does anyone have a link for Canadian Military photos, as I have not found a searchable archive online yet?
