Fortified Farm and Two Bridges
The fortified farm consists of several buildings fortified and strengthened to withstand an enemy infantry attack. One of the two bridges, the light colored one, is a railroad bridge over a small stream using only stringers beneath the bridge for support and no bridge piers, The second bridge is a foot-wagon bridge also using nothing but the heavy stringers (baulks) for support. The background painting was done by the unit artist, Maryanne Germain.
