I have been watching a rather good 4 part documentary on the build up to d-day. There where several shots of black and white film (some of which I have seen small clips off and some screen shots in books) of Rommel inspecting various areas of the Atlantic Wall defences.
I am unsure if this black and white propaganda film was shot in one day or over several different occassions. In one scene he visited a unit called assault gun battlalion 200. It was to view a Nebelwerfer like rocket launcher being fired. On another bit he sees troops on manuvere and looks to later inspect a drive by of what looks to be troops of the same unit. They where kitted in some sort of partial camouflage while still showing parts of their field grey uniform.
I have been several times to WN62 at Omaha beach - Coleville sector and was wondering if any of this filming was done in any nearby countryside (around vierville sur mer, st honorine etc)? Thanks in advance for any help anyone can provide.

Reason: Nebelwerfer is correct - but not "nerbelwharfer" !!!! - and Omaha beach - not "Omagh" beach !!!
