    Found these this week but my camera has run out of battery so don't have anymore pictures at the moment. They are a really interesting read, especially the Bailey bridge book. When I was a youngster my sixth form college was the school where Mr Bailey, designer of the famous bridge, was educated. The shop where I found them has more so I may pop back on payday.

    You are very lucky to find wartime publications Trelawney!
    Here is one of my post-war editions for the Bailey Bridge.

    The two Bailey bridge books are July 1944 dated but the RE pocket book is July 1945. Lots of technical information in each, I could go and build a bridge now!
