From the MoD

The longest bridge built on operations since World War Two has been handed over to the people of Gereshk in a ceremony attended by the district governor.

It cost £1.2 million to construct the 70-metre long Freedom Bridge which connects communities either side of the NEB Canal.

For soldiers of 29 Armoured Engineer Squadron – part of 35 Royal Engineers – it was the main effort throughout Operation HERRICK 15.

Cracking stuff

TD readers should be well versed in military bridge building by now, anyone suggest what sort it is?
