Color film of Tiger 332 arriving in port in the USA

I found this on Facebook. But, it isn't a shareable Youtube video and it's posted in a private group so just linking to it won't work.

But, it is apparently an 8mm or 16mm color film of King Tiger 332 being unloaded in the USA so there should be no doubt as to the original colors of the tank. Sadly the quality of the film is poor but perhaps frames from it can be enhanded.

Has anyone else seen this? Obviously the film has been around since 1945-46 but has it been posted before?

...on Greg Walden's website about Tigers in the Ardennes.

quality is very poor due to age / transfer from film / VHS

Here are a couple of frames :

Other footage of 332 at APG

June 27 2017, 3:20 PM 

There is other footage taken of 332 at APG before it was put on display, showing it driving, out at a range (not firing), and starting the engine with the hand crank. It's black and white film and even poorer quality than the color film. I'll try to get it posted to YouTube or the Tigers in the Ardennes page on FB.

I think I've seen stills before but not the footage, it would be nice if it was shared more, rather than on closed groups.
