    Thank you Brian,

    I think you have it. I have a couple of photos of the track material you describe in use on a by pass road at Bayeaux. Seem to be a layer of Somerfeld with narrow trackway of timbers tied together much like corduroy track except that the timbers are squared, and a layer of Somerfeld on top to hold it in place.

    90 Field Company list Flexiboard as being part of the loads of trailers carrying Sommerfeld and Chespale trackway.

    I volunteer with a local war museum and post on Facebook daily with details of local men and women killed in wartime. Could you tell me please if Captain Peter Duncan Davidson of this unit is mentioned on 24/05/44 or thereabouts? He was KIA on that date although initially posted Missing.
    Many thanks.

    Hi, do you have anything for June 1945? I'm trying to find more information on my Husbands Grandfather who died 8th June. Thanks in advance.
