Hi, does anyone have any information about 837 and 115 coy pioneer corps ?
I can tell you that both coys were in 21 Army Group in North West Europe.
115 Pnr Coy in 56 Pnr Gp (Second Army)
837 Pnr Coy in 38 Pnr Gp (L of C)
115 Pnr Coy in 21 Pnr Gp (First Cdn Army)
837 Pnr Coy (HQ only) in 6 L of C Sub Area (in the Netherlands)
115 Pnr Coy was stioned in Wijchen in May 1945, and had moved to Borger by June 1945. Both places are in the Netherlands.
You will get more information from these War Diaries at the National Archives at Kew.
