Finished this little addition last week, just didn't have time to post before leaving for the big smoke
More of the excellent Zevezda BEF figures, holding suitably engineer type stuff... a shovel (apologies to my old mate Jackie Adams from 16 Air Assault, R.E) :):):)
Most British infantry formations of this era had a dedicated engineer platoon
Eventually I'd like a fully independent company of engineers but need to finish the infantry battalions first
Here they included in a typical support company from the early war era, which includes: command section, engineers, mortar platoon and a light anti aircraft machinegun platoon
Another variation, with the AALMG platoon swapped out for a medium machinegun unit, though this was far less common
Yet another variation still, this one includes a Boys anti tank rifle platoon. I now have one complete BEF infantry battalion, one down, two to go.
