    Hi all,

    I was wondering if anybody could help me find the war diaries of the 85 Bridging Company, RCASC for september 44, prior to move to Bourg Leopold.

    They were working on a Bailey bridge over the Albert Canal near Geel, private Henri Giroux died during this.

    I hope to find some mentioning in WD or appendixes, but I can't find them. Even BAC/LAC mailed me they don't have them....

    Any help would be appreciated.

    The National Archives, Kew, have a copy.

    Reference is WO 179/3299, 85 Bridging Coy., 1944 Jan.- Dec.

    This may not have the appendixes in it. I have noticed that a some of the Canadian WD at Kew only have the diary pages.
