Hi All Spent some time last summer recording my uncle Bill, who was a sapper in 216 field company RE with the BEF in France right from ‘39 through till Dunkirk. Obviously he has lots of stories but one of the one’s that stuck out was his role as ‘gelignite man’ – his description. He was initially building radars until the Germans advanced and was then detailed to ‘blow up anything that wasn’t tied down’ – his description again – bridges, fuel dumps etc He’s 90 now, as bright as a button but a bit vague about when and how and I’d like to fill in some gaps. Does anyone know what his responsibilities/duties would have been as the ‘gelignite man’? – He does remember it gave him terrible headaches……..
