The article is from the 1944 December issue of 'The Railway Gazette'. The Bailey Bridge was a successful British design that used adaptable modular/sectional pin and bolted steel construction; these features enabled it to be built quickly to handle a variety of loads and lengths, often under combat conditions.
The Bailey Bridge was widely used by the Allied Forces engineer units for rapid repair or complete replacement of damaged road and railway bridges in the majority of the combat theaters.
The Railway Gazette was a British magazine that discussed the British railway industry and railways world wide.
I’ve placed a duplicate of this post in the site sections 'USA 1919 -1945' and the 'United Kingdom & Its Empire and Commonwealth 1919 -1945' due to the Bailey Bridge's use by the US, British and Commonwealth units.
