Hi Sturm 78,

a very interesting pic again. Thanks for posting. The pontoons are Austrian, but this type of pontoon existed alraedy before 1936. Here two pics with the elder bridge building material (first pic a pontoon bridg over the Danube 1925).

Best regards

Bert

Invented in 1841 (!) by the military engineer Karl Freiherr von Birago (1792–1845)
Born in Milano.
Some modifications did take place over time, though.
