Hello! My names Cate and I'm looking for information on my grandad because it's a bit vague! My amazing wonderful Grandad died in 2014, at the age of 93, and even though I had seen him almost every day of my life, after he died I suddenly had a million questions I'd wish I'd asked him! What I know is my grandad was in the Royal Engineers and I think he was in 125 quarrying company, in the Faroe Islands, he was building the runway, after this I think he ended up in the Isle of Wight training for Operation Pluto, he helped lay the Bambi section to Cherbourg, and I believe they had generators disguised in buildings pumping the oil for the D.Day landings, he also went to Paris. After this I think he was sent to Egypt and I no he was there in 1946, I would love to know what he was doing in Egypt! At some point he help construct the hospital under Dover castle, he ended up in the hospital with measles and his unit carried on without him to Burma, and he never rejoined them. He also constructed bailey bridges. I'm looking for any information about what the Royal engineers did in these areas I'd love to fill in some gaps! Thanks for reading!
