    30000 tons of RE stores, 19000 feet of Bailey for 16 bridges. 1125 miles of piping was used to transfer petrol to Eindhoven, 4 forestry companies were operating in Belgium, numerous airfields, railways and dewatering were required for Operation Plunder.

    Where are all these assets now?
    Did they come from Div, Corps, Army or Army Groups?
    How many bridges can we put in today?
    Are we vunerable without these supply of stores?
