The Bailey Bridge was a portable, pre-fabricated bridge that could be constructed on site from parts and erected across a river or ravine from one side only. Thus it had certain advantages over other designs that required access to both sides of the river or ravine. Introduced during WW2, many such bridges were erected and many still exist. This example is at the Pegasus Memorial Museum in Ranville, Normandy.
