    A sharp eye for detail! And plenty of other rivers crossed...

    Very interesting. But from the tweet I cannot tell which archive is holding the pics. An idea? The Times Archive?

    Hi Mike,

    I just started looking at a PDF about Canadian participation in Plunder and it references this document. Is it available as a PDF by any chance? (I have no idea how big it is or anything.)

    Cheers,
    Chris

    Tsk! I was just poking around on my hard drive and I found it. You must have already given it to me. Sorry!

    Hi all,

    I am wondering if anyone has the tables which show when and how the various divisional sub-units crossed the Rhine? Stolpi very kindly gave me the 43rd Infantry Division war diary for March and I was fascinated to look at these. I think I am about to do a dive into the canadiana site to see if I can find them for 3rd Canadian Division.

    I was just looking through the 51 Division orders for Plunder posted by stolpi, and came across this bit about the barrages, which mentions both "pepper pot" and "mustard pot" - I suppose to distinguish the two.
