    275 Field Company RE were in 51st Highland Division.
    They had crossed the Wadi Zeuss on the 17th March this is near the Mareth Line.
    There were lots of minefields in this area so lots of work for the sappers.

    EDIT Just read that ...''the whole sector of 153 Bde was under heavy shellfire on the 18th and 19th ."
