Vanguard of the British Eighth Army enters S. Giorgio di Nogaro

Description

Vehicles with British flags are entering the town while civilians line the streets, waving and throwing flowers. In front of a large building, behind the fountain, the Italian, British and American flags are flying. An aircraft is flying over and two flares have been ignited.
