Major J.C.A. Roseveare Bridge Memorial, River Dives
Major Roseveare commanded 3rd Para Sqn RE which was charged with blowing up five bridges over the River Dives. In his jeep, in the early hours of D-Day, he and his men charged down the hill from the village towards this bridge, when in his own words, 'the fun started, as there seemed to be a Boche in every doorway, shooting like mad. However, the boys got to work with their stens and Sapper Peachy did good work as rear gunner with the Bren'. They blew a 20ft gap in the masonry and then set off to their next target.
