Thanks to a pointer from a friend I found this lengthy article, part of a series of three, and this is for Italy: UK Military Bridging - World War II (Italy) - Think Defence The others are: Africa & NW Europe: UK Military Bridging - World War II (Africa and Northwest Europe) - Think Defence and the Far East: UK Military Bridging - World War II (The Far East) - Think Defence Plus a variety of non-WW2 themes. They date from 2011 and have maps, photos etc and a few links. I have only skimmed the Italian article and did scan the forum to see if they had been posted before. Bridging appears in many places, notably on river crossings in NW Europe. Enjoy.
