This presentation explores the history of the Bailey bridge and the role of the Royal Canadian Engineers in its construction during and after WWII. Developed as a simple bridge to support the war effort and the mobility of British troops in World War II, the Bailey Bridge has become ubiquitous in many locations around the world where it, or a version thereof, continues to be built.
