: the role of the Royal Engineers (RE) on D-Day & in the campaign is another aspect of the British & Commonwealth story that deserves more focus. On most beaches the RE were among the first to land, clearing the beaches making the assault possible. 1/14

in 1942, Percy Hobart. He formed 7 Armoured Division, was dismissed because of his "unconventional" ideas but was re-enlisted by Churchill. He introduced special tanks, such as Crocodile, AVRE, ARK, Crab and Duplex Drive within his 79 Armoured Division.

All the D-Day footage got us thinking - modular dragon teeth? Sections no more than 20kg, carried in the back of a section vehicle with a concrete column inserted to hold it firm. Can be emplaced with nil plant requirement.

Somewhat belatedly my article about has been published on line at but would stress it took great efforts on ALL fronts at sea, on land & in the air to defeat Nazi Germany. The new Normandy Memorial to the fallen is important in remembering that.
