Does anyone know how long this unit served in France prior to the evacuation?
This is way out of my league but looking at the National Archive for the diaries it states from April-June 1940.
Catalogue description 214 Army Field Company Royal Engineers
Reference: WO 167/971
214 Army Field Company Royal Engineers
Date: 1940 Apr.-June
Held by: The National Archives, Kew
Haven't a clue if this helps ?
They don't appear to be included under the arm of service serials in the 11th April 1940 listings...which may or may not be significant.
Arrived Le Havre 2nd April 1940 at 0800hrs and some of the Company left France via the beaches near Malo les Baines between the afternoon and midnight on the 28th May and the rest from the East Mole at Dunkirk on the 29th May.
