    Thanks for posting. My grandfather served with 868 MEP Coy RE at some of the locations mentioned in the 50 Platoon war diaries and I have included a photo of one of the plaques they made while sitting at a field park at Hannover Airfield immediately after VE Day . I believe my grandfather drove a drot ashore on Gold beach either on D day or D+1. 50 Platoon seemed to have been part of 866 Coy - does anyone have any idea about the orbat of 868 coy?
