Remarkable previously unseen photos documenting the momentous closing stages of World War Two and its historic aftermath have come to light.<br />
<br />
They were taken by Sergeant Charles Hewitt, of the Army Film and Photographic Unit, who later went on to work for the Picture Post and the BBC.<br />
<br />
He was present at many of the important offensives of 1944 and '45 including the Battle of Monte Cassino during the Italian Campaign and the Allies advance into Germany following the D-Day invasion.
