    Hi Marion, Note that "Ponton" is a french word referring to any structure such as a floating bridge or a dock. I have two jpegs of the 286th Engineer Bn crosssing into Germany in 1944, after they built a "ponton" bridge across the river. One of the pics is of my father, major Robert Leslie Spence, and the others are unidentified.. They were on the march all the way from the Normandy beach head. I am not sure how to post them to your websiite, any advice will be appreciated. thanks, michael spence
